Jackdaws Teacher's Guide.
Greenberg, Judith E.; Carey, Helen H.
This teacher's guide describes "Jackdaws"--materials that emphasize the use of primary and secondary sources in the teaching of history. A typical Jackdaws kit contains reproductions of primary and secondary source materials; broadsheets, which present detailed background information on the subject matter of the kit; and notes on the documents. Jackdaws are structured in a number of ways: around a historical event (for example, the French Revolution); around a person (Tutankhamun); around a topic (Life in Africa); around a historical period (Reconstruction); or around a combination of some or all of the above (Cromwell's Commonwealth). This guide presents ideas for teachers to introduce Jackdaws to their classes. The guide includes a section that provides a range of skill development and evaluation activities appropriate for use with Jackdaws. Another section discusses how to locate primary and secondary sources. Also included in the guide are cross-reference charts that identify traditional curriculum units where Jackdaws can be introduced and their source documents used to add depth to the event or concept being studied.
