Conflict! Battle of Gettysburg. Teacher's Guide.
National Park Service (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
This flexible resource teaching package describes the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg and explores how conflicts begin and how they can be ended. Lessons address visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners while fostering critical thinking skills as students read, write, analyze, and draw conclusions. Role playing and other creative activities are included. The packet contains five lessons: (1) "Conflict and Its Resolution"; (2) "The Conflicts that Caused the Civil War"; (3) "The Gettysburg Campaign and the Battle"; (4) "How the Gettysburg Conflict Affected People"; and (5) "The Gettysburg Address." The lessons are designed to: work with a poster and prepare students for a visit to Gettysburg; offer teachers a way to integrate the study of history with other academic subjects in the upper elementary grades; and coordinate with the learner outcomes identified by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Teachers can use one lesson or all five. Includes additional resources for both students and teachers. (EH)
