A Historical Odyssey: Research of the Opposing Perspectives of the Battle of San Pasqual. A Specially Adapted Unit Plan for Secondary Educational Sheltered/Bilingual Programs. [A Fully Integrated Instructional Unit.]
Gastellum, David; And Others
This lesson plan uses a poem about a specific battle as the starting point for a secondary educational sheltered/bilingual program for limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in San Diego, California. The plan is to use primary and secondary documentation to view both sides of the battle that prompted the writing of the poem. Goals of the program include greater student self-esteem and greater understanding of a historical event through improved reading, writing, and overall expression in the English language. Homework and parent/community involvement activities are suggested, and photos and drawings of relevant places which help to explain the situation are included. Much historical background is provided, including an actual bullet (not included here). (NAV)
