Guide to Faculty:
A review at this point may help ensure the learning about democracy, the differences in government and even democratic systems, elections, rule of law and human rights. Faculty are free to conduct the review as they see fit.
It might take the form of a class discussion:
1. What are the most important points you learned: (a) about democracy, (b) about elections, (c) about what citizens should expect from government and how this should influence the choice they make for officials and leaders.
2. What are the most important points you learned about citizenship?
3. What is the power of citizenship? (that citizenship has responsibilities, discuss these different responsibilities)
4. What is the importance of rule of law? (that no one is exempt from law, that law applies to all equally. State operations must apply due process, the rules that govern its conduct in dealing with the people, including the arrests and detention of suspects of crime.)
5. Why are human rights important? (Concept of human rights limits what government can do in the fulfillment of their duties and in pursuit of the objectives of its programs and policies. That these are shared equally and are inalienable, cannot be taken away except by due process of law.)
