The Civil War and Reconstruction. Public Domain Edition. Grade Ten. Resource Unit IV. Project Social Studies.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.
The tenth-grade resource unit, developed by the University of Minnesota's Project Social Studies, is the fourth in a series of six units on continuity and change in American civilization. The attempt to apply the egalitarian ideology of the Democratic Age to the Negro and the ramifications of this attempt upon the political system are analyzed. The Civil War is examined as a case study of a political system in times of crisis. The course is designed to teach attitudes and inquiry 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. Specific questions to facilitate classroom discussion are listed. A bibliography of student and teacher materials to be used in the course is listed; however, many other materials can be used in lieu of those suggested. Related documents are SO 006 777-783.
