New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Bureau of Curriculum Development.
The purpose of this Bicentennial handbook is to assist teachers, supervisors, and others in the preparation of programs that will encourage participation in Bicentennial activities while also developing significant knowledge, skills, abilities, attitudes, and appreciations in the educational process. The handbook contains a compilation of numerous historic and cultural resources pertinent to Bicentennial themes, as well as suggested steps for developing a documentary program with respect to local communities, ethnic and national experiences, businesses and industry, recreational programs and facilities, and the American society (past, present, and future). The first part of the document includes a guide to developing community markers, information on how and where to begin the research process, descriptions of places to go and see, a list of periodicals, techniques of oral history, and suggestions for visual experiences. The second part of the handbook lists activities for classrooms, including Bicentennial games, walking tours, individual school histories, museums, and early childhood Bicentennial activities. Several appendices which list community and historical landmarks in the New York City area conclude the document. (Author/JR)
