Dreams of a Barefoot Boy: 1890-1911. Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Barbieri, Kim E.
The Eisenhower Foundation developed and produced posters and curriculum materials for "Dreams of a Barefoot Boy: 1890-1911," the first in a series that examines, in depth, the life and times of Dwight D. Eisenhower, the 34th U.S. President. This collection of primary source documents consists of documents with social themes relating to: Eisenhower's home and family; his school and education; his church and religion; his work, play, and entertainment; and his community. It is important for that students continue to learn about Dwight D. Eisenhower, a person who dominated his times as few others have and emerged as one of the giants of the 20th century. The collection addresses national standards for history (K-4), including standards in historical thinking, for historical comprehension, historical analysis and interpretation, historical research capabilities, and historical issues analysis and decision making. It addresses standards which deal with community life, history of the state, and democratic principles within the United States. It provides a sample sheet for student evaluation of the primary source read. The teacher's guide contains: information for teacher preparation; learning objectives; and National Standards for History information. (BT)
