Supplemental Pacific Northwest History Materials: Overcoming Racism and Sexism. Multicultural Education Resource Series.
Chestnut, Stephen Lawrence
Twenty-four units which focus on the contribution of women and minority group members to the development of the Pacific Northwest provide supplementary material for high school social studies classes. The lives of 12 women are treated in separate units. Other topics include the Pacific Northwest 100 years ago, the temperance movement, oral history of women, the Chinese Exclusion Act, Japanese-American internment, and the Filipino community. The lives of George Washington (a black man who founded the town of Centralia, Washington) and George Washington Bush and the speech of Chief Sealth are also covered. Each unit includes objectives as well as specific activities to help students understand the materials. Although some units include all materials needed, most rely on outside readings. A bibliography of these readings is included. (IS)
