Save Our History. America's Most Endangered, 2001. [Videotape and] The Idea Book for Educators.
A&E Network, New York, NY.
"Save Our History" is The History Channel's national campaign dedicated to historic preservation and history education. As part of the campaign, The History Channel produces a videotape, "America's Most Endangered," based on a list developed annually by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The videotape focuses attention on the National Trust's quest to save and preserve the 11 most endangered historical places in the United States, places of historical significance that face neglect, decay, and ruin. The goal is to raise the public's awareness about the importance of historic preservation. The videotape is suitable for middle and high school classes on U.S. history, social studies, environmental sciences, and writing. The accompanying idea book provides teachers with previewing, viewing, and post-viewing activities, as well as a vocabulary list. (BT)
