United States History: Colonization through Reconstruction. A Curriculum Guide for Grade 7.
Hughes, Wayne; And Others
This curriculum guide of seventh grade materials for United States history, colonization through reconstruction, is prepared for the Carroll County Public Schools. Learning activities of the units are based on material available in the Carroll County Schools. The purpose of the program is to have students discover meaning and relevance in the study of the past through development of the analytical concepts of cause and effect, loyalty to one's country, empathy, the industrialization-urbanization syndrome, the historical method, and social change. Major topics of study include the establishment of colonies, the Revolutionary War, political cartoons, establishment of the government, the Jacksonian Era, the growth of the United States, and sectionalism and the Civil War. An evaluation of the program and appendices conclude the document. (Author/JR)
