Abe Lincoln in Illinois. A Sound Filmstrip Program. Study Guide.
Peters, John; Peters, Frances
Based on Robert E. Sherwood's Pulitzer Prize winning play, this filmstrip study guide examines Lincoln's formative years against the backdrop of an emerging frontier America. Carl Sandburg's epic three-volume biography of Lincoln accompanies the complete program. The three filmstrips--"Young Abe Lincoln,""A House Divided," and "Lincoln and Liberty" --deal with episodes and issues concerning Lincoln's early life and are to be used with selected readings in volume one, "The Prairie Years," of the Sandburg biography. Volumes two and three of the biography may be used for independent research and study of Lincoln's presidency and the war years. Information provided in the guide for each filmstrip includes a synopsis, activities to use with students before viewing the filmstrip, a list of vocabulary terms, and themes to explore. Unit activities include discussion topics, ideas for creative and expository writing, topics for further investigation, and ways of comparing the book and filmstrip. The guide concludes with a brief bibliography of additional literature about Lincoln. (RM)
