The Rhode Island Box, 1976: Teacher's Guide.
Rhode Island State Dept. of Education, Providence. Div. of Development and Operations.
The activities and materials in this teacher's guide are designed to help students understand and appreciate their heritage during the American Bicentennial. The collection is intended for use in Rhode Island schools. Seven component areas are identified and serve as chapter titles. Each is designed to explore one or more of the themes focusing on creativity, diversity, and idealism--three factors shaping the development of Rhode Island. Skills such as hypothesizing and data collecting are emphasized in each activity. The seven components include Time and Place, The Land and Us, Individual Rights and Responsibilities, Arts, All the People, Now and Then, and Famous Rhode Islanders. Each chapter contains an introduction and overview, objectives of the unit, materials needed, and specific learning activities. Appendices include resource lists and bibliographies. The materials are easily adapted for use in both elementary and secondary classes. Although the guide is designed to be used in Rhode Island schools, it can be used as a model for other states.
