Pacific Northwest History: A Library Research Unit Emphasizing Multicultural Perspectives. Multicultural Education Resource Series.
Brace, Wanda Buckner; And Others
Designed for high school students, this unit provides library activities for six topics in Pacific Northwest history. Although the references are located in the Renton High School (Olympia, Washington) library, the lessons are appropriate for anyone with access to the materials. The six topics are natural environment, Indians, western frontier, statehood, King County people and places, and the 20th century. The lessons are arranged uniformly for each topic. Annotated references with call number and location in the library are followed by color-coded worksheets. Using the references and working in pairs, students complete one question sheet from the three. Questions are designed to emphasize the contributions and impact of women and minorities in developing the Pacific Northwest. Suggestions on effective use of the unit and on how to devise more questions and answer sheets are also included. (IS)
