Settling People in the American Colonies, Episode II. Resource Material Development: Population Dynamics in Eighth Grade American History.
Massialas, Byron G.; And Others
This guide is the first in a series of eight designed to help teachers introduce population concepts into eighth grade American history curriculum. (Unit I was never published). Each of the units has a teacher and student component. Although the units can be used in five-day segments, teachers are encourage to use them in a more flexible manner, using the materials for extended periods of time. In the teaching guide of each unit an evaluation form, a statement of the unit's broad goal, specific statements of objectives in behavioral terms, hypotheses, background information, materials and equipment needed, and instructions as to how to use these materials are included. Specific materials (springboards) for classroom use are found in the student manual. In this document, Episode II, the history topic is European colonization of the New World. This unit has four segments. Twelve springboards and one transparency are given that help the student (1) scrutinize the life-style and settlement patterns of the American Indian before the arrival of the European and their later displacement because of colonist settlement patterns, (2) examine the ecological characteristics of where the colonists chose to settle, (3) compare and identify the characteristics of people in England between 1650-1700 with those who migrated to the New World, and (4) examine the relationship of certain background factors of the settlers to the geographic distribution within the colony.
