The U.S. Moves West.
National Archives and Records Administration, Washington, DC. Office of Public Programs.
This publication is intended for teachers bringing a class to visit the National Archives in Washington, D.C., for a workshop on primary documents. The National Archives serves as the repository for all federal records of enduring value. Primary sources are vital teaching tools because they actively engage the student's imagination so that he or she may visualize past events and make sense of their reality and meaning. This publication concerns a workshop on the westward expansion of the United States. Two subjects that are featured in the workshop are the Northwest Ordinance and Geronimo, the Apache Indian chief. Photographs of both the Northwest Ordinance and Geronimo (by A. Frank Randall) are included, as are two student exercises. (DB)
