United States History: A Multi-Ethnic, Non-Sexist, Multi-Disciplinary Resource Guide for High School Teachers.
Hohenfeldt, Harold H., Ed.
The first part of this resource guide is designed to help secondary teachers provide a multi-ethnic/non-sexist thrust to United States history. The second part will help them develop a multi-disciplinary approach to U.S. history. Part one is organized by the following ethnic groups: Blacks, Asians, Europeans, Hispanics, Jews, American Indians, and women. A variety of information is provided for these groups. For example, the section on Blacks outlines concepts and events that can be taught throughout the various periods of U.S. history. Recommended readings and media are listed. Activities are suggested. Students discuss readings, do research, participate in debates, and make reports. The section on Asian Americans is an annotated bibliography of specific works dealing with one topic or issue such as Asian women, Asian Americans and the law, or the plight of the Asian American elderly and poor. The second part of the guide contains resources to help teachers teach various disciplines in U.S. history. A section on economic growth identifies key economic concepts that have influenced major periods in U.S. history and suggests learning activities and resources. The importance of geographic factors in influencing the course of historical events is the topic of one section. The third section deals with politics and government in American life. The last two sections deal with art and music respectively. (Author/RM)
