Near Home: Using Writing in the Study of Local History. Writing To Learn Video Series. [Videotape.]
This 27-minute videotape joins a third-grade class as they discover local history by looking into the community for ideas, by exploring their families and neighborhoods for oral history, and by writing as a way of recording what they learn. It shows how teachers think about how to use language skills for learning and how to make use of local resources to engage students in subject matter. It comes with a 32-page manual to guide group discussion and individual study. (RS)
