Conflict! Dwight D. Eisenhower. Teacher's Guide.
National Park Service (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
This teaching package introduces students to soldier and President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who played a key role in many of the conflicts of the 20th century. The package is to prepare students for a visit to the Eisenhower Farm in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The lessons challenge students to use the study of Eisenhower to explore how conflicts are caused--and how they can be solved. This teaching package has been designed to appeal to all types of learners--visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. The packet fosters critical thinking skills as students read, write, analyze and draw conclusions. Students also participate actively through role playing. The teaching package includes five lessons: (1) "Conflict and Its Resolution"; (2) "Causes of International Conflict"; (3) "Eisenhower and His Times"; (4) "Conflicts Eisenhower Faced"; and (5) "How Would Eisenhower Have Handled It?" In an additional lesson, "Site Visit: A Visit by a World Leader," students, using primary source documents, develop their own planned visit by Jawaharlal Nehru. The lessons offer teachers a way to integrate the study of this U.S. President with the 11th grade U.S. history curriculum and were designed to coordinate with the learner outcomes identified by the Pennsylvania State Department of Education. Contains 12 references. (EH)
