Oregon ASCD Curriculum Bulletin, v24 n326 Jan 1975
Teachers preparing a United States history course on the Bicentennial for elementary grades will find this sourcebook useful. It is designed for use in the classroom and at school assemblies and holiday celebrations where opportunities to focus on our nation's heritage may occur. The sourcebook provides both factual information and materials for teaching activities that could supplement a traditional American history course. A historic calendar of events, people, and places presents significant dates from January through December. The document also contains lists of the 50 states and dates of entry to the Union; presidents of the United States; and documents such as the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, Mayflower Compact, and the Gettysburg Address. Patriotic songs and poems are also included. (Author/JR)
