Schools and Bicentennials: A New York State Handbook of Ideas.
Johnson, Katherine; Robinson, David
As a guide for administrators, teachers, and students during the bicentennial year, the handbook suggests themes and ideas intended to stimulate further thinking about the Bicentennial. The Heritage, Festival, and Horizons themes established by the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration are described to provide direction for schools and communities in developing programs of particular significance to their students and citizens. The booklet offers question-and-answer sections on organizing a school Bicentennial program; use of the Bicentennial themes in the classroom; some Bicentennial school program ideas; community, state, and national resources; and sources of funding. Throughout the handbook, many examples of classroom and community projects are given with accompanying descriptions and photographs. Although written for New York schools and communities, the handbook's ideas are also useful for others. (ND)
