Bicentennial: Materials and Strategies.
Dynneson, Thomas L., Ed.; And Others
This resource guide is intended for use as a general guide for teachers who are designing elementary and secondary Bicentennial social studies units. The unit stresses three main topics in both an historical and contemporary framework: family life, transportation, and social conflict for the periods of 1776, 1876, and 1976. Emphasis is on the social history of America rather than the political history. The unit only presents outlines, suggested activities, and resource lists. It is up to the individual teacher to collect the materials and fully develop social studies units. A list of suggested library resources, audiovisual resources, discussion questions, and activities are provided. The unit outlines the basic concepts followed by corresponding lists of print and nonprint resources. (Author/JR)
