Bring History Alive! A Sourcebook for Teaching United States History.
Ankeney, Kirk, Ed.; Del Rio, Richard, Ed.; Nash, Gary B., Ed.; Vigilante, David, Ed.
This resource manual, built around 1,200 classroom activities, was created by elementary, middle, and high school teachers for teachers who wish to engage in an inquiry-based approach to historical knowledge and historical understanding. The teaching examples are offered as sample activities and are not considered to be a complete curriculum. The teaching examples are organized by grade level and era and are supplemented by essays of two types. In Part I, a number of short essays by experienced teachers explore ways of bringing history alive. In Part II, essays introduce each of the 10 eras of United States history. Each essay dwells on a particular theme or approach relevant to the era. The 10 eras are borrowed from the "National Standards for United States History" and encompass the chronological study of U.S. history presented in the schools. (EH)
