Teaching with Historical Records.
This manual is intended to help elementary and secondary teachers locate and use historical records in social studies and local history courses. There are four major sections to the manual. The first section discusses educational objectives which can be met by using historical records. How to locate and use historical records is the topic of the second section. For example, a good way to begin the search for records is by contacting the local historian. Several bibliographic aids which identify repositories and their holdings are listed. Tips for using the repositories and for preparing records for classroom use are presented. The third section, which comprises the major portion of the manual, provides sample uses of the following historical records: personal papers, business records, local government records, maps, photographs, broadsides, and census records. A brief background reading on each of the records is provided for the teacher. Following this reading is a self-contained activity with questions to ask and points to consider for use with students. Additional learning activities are also suggested. Section four provides suggestions for further reading. (Author/RM)
