3rd Grade Government Homework: ‘Good Citizens Do Not Argue’

More pictures and a brief description follow.

An old school chum sent us this Ohio-based 3rd grade government study guide showing that the generation immediately following ours is under a more-than-subtle approach to behavior modification.

We think this study guide given out before Christmas break 2013 speaks for itself. It may or may not be Common Core based. Behavior molding schooling precedes Common Core by decades.

Aside from the take home message that if you don’t button your mouth, obey laws, vote and pay taxes “you’re bad” – a third grader can also learn incorrect spelling and grammar with this guide.

What is it that an 8-year-old is never to argue about? And with whom?

A lot could be said about the mixed messages in this study guide – please leave your thoughts below.

Whatever you do…don’t “liter” – you’re a very, very bad citizen if you do it.

    This type of introduction of cognitive dissonance in education was attempted decades ago. Read Educating For the New World Order by Beverly Eakman. In some of the examples in her book, I remember that the multiple choice answers were all deliberately vague and none stood out as the ‘right’ answer to a paragraph to supposedly test reading comprehension. The author believed that this led students to believe that there is NO fact-based, objective truth, and all perspectives and points of view are equally valid. “It’s all relative” in other words. An extremely dangerous worldview that prevents an informed citizenry from emerging.

Thank you for sharing.
