Patrick, John J.; Stoltman, Joseph
Designed to accompany a series of 10 20-minute video programs, this teaching guide helps students to use geographical principles and concepts in order to better understand major historical development. The series uses the five basic geographic themes to enhance student understanding of significant events in U.S. history: location, place, human/environment relationships, movement, and regions. The 10 programs in the series are: (1) North vs. South in the Founding of the U.S.A., 1787-1796; (2) Jefferson Decides to Purchase Louisiana, 1801-1813; (3) Civil War and Social Change in Georgia, 1860-1870; (4) Clash of Cultures on the Great Plains, 1865-1890; (5) An Industrial Revolution in Pittsburgh, 1865-1900; (6) Americans Build the Panama Canal, 1901-1914; (7) A Nation of Immigrants: The Chinese-American Experience, 1850-1990; (8) Moving North to Chicago, 1900-1945; (9) New Deal for the Dust Bowl, 1931-1945; and (10) The Origin and Development of NATO, 1945-1991. This guide includes materials for teachers to help them utilize the videos in their classrooms. The discussion of each program in this guide features the following sections: curriculum connection, objectives, geographic theme, program summary, before the program, during the program, after the program, follow-up activities, and suggested readings. Handouts and documents accompany each program. (DB)
