Resource Supplement for United States History. Grade 8.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Bureau of Planning and Evaluation.
Ideas, materials, and references about racial and ethnic groups for a history course are furnished in this supplement. The material is divided into sections that correspond to the units of a regular eighth grade course of study so that teachers may include important ideas about minorities and their activities in American history while developing each total unit at the same time. Suggestions for teaching about the roles of Negro, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Puerto Rican, and Indian Americans in American life are presented. An overview lists the unit topics and identifies pages in the supplement where they are treated. Each of eleven units in the course, covering United States history from the colonial period to the present, is outlined by topic and accompanied by corresponding suggestions of reading materials for students. A short list of student and teacher activities concludes the suggested materials for each unit. An appendix contains a playlet, sample lessons on major topics, an example of a handout, a list of famous Negroes, and a bibliography. (Author/KSM)
