A Teacher's Guide to Experiencing the Age of Homespun with James Y. Brown.
DuBois, Carol J.; Roberts, Rhys
Audiovisual materials available for a social studies unit based on local, primary sources are listed in this guide, a supplement to the Age of Homespun (ED 018 323). Teachers designed, produced, and tested these instructional aids which are intended to provide a flexible, interdisciplinary unit readily adapted to differing grade levels. Local research methods of the PROJECT PROBE workshop members are described and materials available for a classroom study unit are listed for prototype purposes. Of major importance are reprints of three original diaries (1841-60), sets of 35 mm. slides, and audio tapes. Suggested activities for the following student projects are also given: Gravestone Rubbings, Map Exercises, Genealogical Charts, Folk Life Interviews, Architectural Surveys, Compare Use of Time in J. Y. Brown's Day With Use Today, Study Use of Primary Sources, and Related Grammar Exercises. An extensive bibliography gives annotations of in-print references as well as historical sources. Supplemental materials for the J. Y. Brown primary resource project can be obtained from 135 Old Main, State University College, Oneonta, New York, or they can be reproduced in quantity through the facilities at Curriculum Enrichment Center, Norwich, New York, by arrangement with Richard Heller. Related documents are: ED 018 320, ED 018 321; ED 018 322. (Author/JSB)
