His Name was Lincoln: A Multimedia Biography. [Multimedia.]
McPherson, James M.
These printed materials (a user's guide, a 2-part topical guide on peace and war with suggestions for classroom activities, a teacher's guide for the "Magic Media Slate,") accompany a multimedia resource packet that includes 2 interactive CD-ROMs and "Magic Media Slate," a word processor program. The packet examines the life and times of Abraham Lincoln. The user's guide introduces the program, explains how to begin, and points to activities in the teacher's guide. The 11 chapter, 2-part topical guide, "Peace and War," presents activities for students to gain further understanding. Each chapter is divided into four standard sections: recording immediate impressions; listening and comprehending; student handouts; and extensions and expressions. The "Magic Media Slate" teacher's guide assists with installing the program on the computer, explains how to get started, offers instruction on using the word processor, and teaches how to work with multimedia in a word processing environment. The guide concludes with an index of special clip art for use with the program. (MM)
