Teacher's Guide to the Tenth Grade Course on Continuity and Change in American Civilization. Project Social Studies.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.
The Project Social Studies Curriculum Center at the University of Minnesota developed this teacher's guide for a tenth grade course on continuity and change in American civilization. The course, part of an articulated curriculum for grades K-12, is analytical in nature, and designed to teach attitudes and skills as well as generalizations and concepts. Emphasizing the inquiry approach to teaching, the course is divided into the following six parts: 1) the Colonial Age, 1630-1760; 2) the Republican Age, 1760-1820; 3) the Democratic Age, 1820-1840; 4) Civil War and Reconstruction, 1840-1870; 5) Industrialization of America, 1840-1914; and 6) the Consumption Economy, 1920 to present. No attempt is made to develop a complete set of materials for students. The resource units use as many materials from other sources as possible, supplementing these materials with a few developed by the Center. Goals, teaching strategies, and a general outline of the course are provided in the first section of the guide. The second section, which comprises the major portion of the guide, consists of charts showing the sequential development of skills, attitudes, and generalizations in each of the units.
