Two if by Sea: America's Maritime Heritage and the Social Studies Teacher.
Heitzmann, Wm. Ray
In the first part of this document, teachers are urged to include United States' maritime history in planning social studies courses, units, and lessons. After a rationale for teaching the study of the sea, ways in which this topic can be used as content are briefly discussed. For example, units can be developed around the ship building industry, ports, fishing industry, and naval technology. American maritime heritage offers alternatives in instructional strategies whether product or process oriented. Suggestions are given for designing a unit using inquiry strategies, lectures, and current events. The topic also lends itself to an interdisciplinary approach. The major portion of the work presents an annotated bibliography of materials, sources, and references. Included are lists of periodicals, museums, and books which provide information on American's maritime history. (Author/DE)
