The Victorian Age: A Teacher's Guide. Heritage Education Series.
Van Buren, Maurie
This teaching guide accompanies a videocassette for teaching about the Victorian Era in the United States through the study of homes from that period. The teaching unit can be adopted for students in grades 4 through 12 and can also be used in college classes and in adult education. Skills are identified to help students interpret their physical environment through an approach that integrates principles of several subjects including history, sociology, science, mathematics, geography, economics, language arts, political science, art, and home economics. Five lesson plans to supplement the video are contained in the guide; these plans focus on various aspects of Victorian homes and architecture, specifically: American cultural heritage, architectural styles, community heritage, neighborhoods, and the impact of communication on fashion. Seven handouts, a bibliography, and the text of the narrative from the video also are included. (DB)
