Template for perspectives chapters
This verbiage has been removed from the beginning of each perspective chapter.
The template for the basic "perspective" chapter is below. The original template (possibly revised) is in Introduction_to_Section_II. (After the chapter is further along — and the template structure is more-or-less finalized, we can remove this extra verbiage.)
The basic Plan has four parts:
(1) A Introduction to the perspective
A few suggested questions:
- What advantages might civic intelligence offer within this perspective?
- Why is this perspective important?
- Is the perspective used implicitly (or sporadically or locally or partially)?
- Can a civic intelligence orientation help inform or otherwise the efficacy or other patterns of this perspective?
(2) One or more case studies that show different facets of this perspective. Our decision was, as much as it's possible, not to artificially separate thinking and doing. At the same time we do want to present a variety of approaches, some of which will be better suited for think-work and some will be better suited for action (that plays out in the "real" (or material?) world.
(4) Finally, a section that includes text book like end-of-chapter exercises, questions for the student, suggested activities, etc.
