Studying Vermont: Making Connections. Cal Coolidge's Vermont: 1900-1930.
Austin, Patricia
Intermediate and junior high school students learn about the social history of Vermont by studying events and trends during a 30-year period of the life of a famous Vermont native, Calvin Coolidge. Although designed for students in Vermont, materials can easily be adapted for use in other states, particularly those in the New England area. In separate sections, students are introduced to life in smalltown Vermont at the turn of the century, early 20th century reform efforts, a major flood that occurred in Vermont in 1927, and the life and presidency of Calvin Coolidge. Each section contains a reading selection, a list of recommended readings, a vocabulary development exercise, and a list of student activities, projects, and field trips. Where appropriate, prose and poetry selections are included in the student reading. A teacher evaluation form concludes the publication. (LP)
