Teaching the Sixties: An In-Depth, Interactive, Interdisciplinary Approach.
This detailed handbook for a one-semester high school Humanities course is designed to teach students a method of understanding American culture and values which they can use to investigate and analyze the artifacts of the 1960s. The handbook's sections cover 1960s history; popular culture, including television, movies, and bestsellers; architecture and painting; poetry and plays; and dancing and music. Suggestions are also included for a term project and final test. The handbook provides a detailed course outline which teachers can adapt to varied conditions, and offers a flexible array of interactive learning methods: artifact analysis papers, small-group activities, audiovisual materials, field trips, individual and group presentations, and the project. Forty-three reproducible handouts to guide activities (arranged by course units), a bibliography which contains an outline of basic materials needed, and extensive listings of additional print and audiovisual materials are included.
