Californio to American: A Study in Cultural Change. Teaching with Historic Places.
This document, part of the lesson plan series, "Teaching with Historic Places," examines Spanish influences on the history of California through an exploration of one building, Rancho Los Alamitos. Located in the midst of what is now metropolitan Los Angeles, Rancho Los Alamitos began as a simple adobe house on a hill overlooking thousands of acres. Following introductory material the document sets out student objectives and teaching activities. Among the instructional suggestions are sections on "Setting the Stage"; "Locating the Site"; "Determining the Facts"; and "Putting It All Together." The lesson plan includes two map exhibits, five floor plans of the structure, one illustration, two readings, and 10 photographs. (SG)
