Letters of Liberty. Teacher's Guide.
Valentine, Martha; Croddy, Marshall, Ed.
Designed to help students understand the historical context of the primary and secondary materials by and about the framers of the United States Constitution presented in "Letters of Liberty," this teacher's guide provides directed discussions and activities for evaluating these materials. The guide also is intended to help students gain an understanding of the democratic process and to develop critical thinking skills. Each unit in the teacher's guide contains: (1) a description of the contents of the student text; (2) objectives for the unit; (3) reading review; (4) "You're the Historian"--use of original documents and primary source material in the unit (with discussion questions, activities, and modern applications); and (5) skill building intended to reinforce concepts introduced earlier using discussions and activities.
