Celebrate North Dakota's First 100 Years.
Thompson, Lowell
Insights into Open Education, v21 n6 Mar 1989
This issue of "Insights" celebrates North Dakota's centennial. The information and activities it contains were meant for classroom use by teachers from North Dakota during the centennial year, but could provide others with a glimpse of that state's history. A fact sheet on "North Dakota Centennial Dates" gives a brief explanation of the important dates in North Dakota's history that relate to its attainment of statehood. A short history of the state, beginning with the Native Americans in the 1300s and the Spanish and French in the 1500s and 1600s, and ending with statehood in 1889 is contained in an article called "Brief History of North Dakota." A section headed "100 Years Ago on This Day" is a collection of quotes from the Bismarck (North Dakota) "Tribune" taken from various dates in 1888 and 1889. An "Issues" section deals with seven problems and challenges that the people of the state may have to face in the next 100 years, ranging from climate to quality of life. Ideas for classroom activities are contained in "Potpourri of Centennial Activities," and this is followed by an annotated list of 11 projects and activities planned for various parts of the state plus books and curriculum materials that deal with North Dakota's history and Native Americans. Maps and drawings related to the state and its history are contained in a section called "Maps and Things.""Books about North Dakota" (S. Schmidt) is an annotated bibliography of 13 books by North Dakota authors writing about North Dakota. (JB)
