Ethnic Heritage Studies: Family History Project. Experimental Unit.
This teaching guide presents a personal approach to America's past by having students prepare their own family's social geneological history. It is part of the Louisville Area Ethnic Heritage Studies Project described in ED 150 043. The project materials are designed to foster communication across intercultural/ethnic lines. The objective for this unit is to develop an understanding of the ways in which an individual's life is affected by his family background. Planned as a supplement for social studies courses, suggested time allotment is one to two weeks. The guide is comprised of a pretest, four behavioral objectives accompanied by instructional strategies, and a listing of facilitating materials. Also included are 10 worksheets for the student: a family history chart; family group sheet; tips and suggested questions for interviewing; a list of geneological sources of information, suggestions on how to organize a report, and tips on how to write and analyze an obituary. A posttest and bibliography of resources conclude the unit. (Author/CK)
