Alberta Curriculum Linkages-Alberta Learning Social Studies 13 Topic B (Senior High) /20 (Revised 1990)

The Alberta Consumers' Association site provides links to information resources that can be used to meet the learning objectives of the following course.  Objectives that can be met directly are bolded.  For social studies 13 the site supports the citizenship theme and is most useful for exploring the role of voluntary organizations in the community and exploring how special interests groups gather support and affect government policy.  Activities that use the site to meet the learning objectives are suggested.  If you would like to add an activity to this site, send it to Larry Phillips
