A Resource Text for American History.
New, Thomas
This resource text was designed to provide suggestions and ideas that might be helpful in developing an advanced placement/honors U.S. history course. It opens with tips on teaching essay skills, sample essay examinations, strategies for incorporating essays into lesson plans, document-based question guidelines/hints, and strategies for grading essays. Eighteen selected lecture outlines cover such topics as the key concerns facing the Constitutional Convention, and the realities of U.S. foreign policy, 1880-1920. This section is followed by an outline of the review for the national examination. A list of 25 printed and audio-visual resources, a sample syllabus with suggestions for auxiliary assignments, and a suggested course outline are provided. The final section contains a student study guide to be used for content coverage in a survey course. This particular guide was specifically developed for Bailey and Kennedy's "The American Pageant" text. Two appendices contain information on the St. John's College (Baltimore) seminar method of instruction and sample documents to be used in conjunction with a seminar approach to instruction. (JB)
