We Too Built America: Recovering the American Heritage of Three Ethnic/Minority Groups in the Middle Georgia Area. Instructional Guide.
Wimberly, James, Ed.
Designed for elementary and junior high school teachers, this instructional guide provides background information on the social, cultural, and historical contributions of American Indians, African-Americans, and Jewish Americans of the middle Georgia area to the life and development of the community and state and to national heritage. A staff development module contains general objectives, a pretest, and an outline which matches objectives to unit topics. Suggested usage, time allotment, and sequence are followed by a rationale for studying about regional minorities. A section dealing with the immigration of American Indians, African-Americans, and Jewish Americans is followed by information about geographical aspects of the middle Georgia area. The next section focuses on ethnic groups of the region, with separate subsections on the Creek Indians, the slave family, free blacks in Bibb County, and the Jewish community of Macon in 1860. Subsequent sections give information on the religion and education of Indians, Africans, and Jews and political and business interests of Africans and Jews in the region. A look at aspects of Macon's African and Jewish cultural history is followed by a list of references and a bibliography of over 60 books, articles, media materials and unpublished resources. Appendices include geographic information and supplemental photos and maps, additional documentation, e.g., Henry M. Turner's address to the Georgia Legislature, suggested activities, answer keys, and an ethnic heritage survey. (LH)
