The Colonial Period, 1630-1760's. Grade Ten. Resource Unit I. Project Social Studies.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.
The resource unit, developed by the University of Minnesota's Project Social Studies, introduces tenth graders to a course on United States history. A brief survey of colonial history is provided, serving as a baseline against which to note change in the centuries that have followed. The major ideas about culture, its continuity and change, and its diffusion from one place to another through the process of migration are also illustrated. The course is designed to teach attitudes and skills as well as generalizations and concepts. The inquiry approach to teaching is stressed. Preceding the main body of the unit are three sections on the following: 1) major historical points to be developed in the unit; 2) a list of unit objectives; and 3) content outline showing how different topics in American history can be used to teach the unit's major generalizations. The objectives, content, teaching procedures, and instructional materials to be used are specifically explained in the main body of the unit, and the relationship among these is made clear. A bibliography of student and teacher materials to be used in the course is also provided, however, many other materials can be used in lieu of those suggested. Related documents are SO 006 777-783.
