Students answer six questions aimed at illuminating the standard's topic. It discusses the significance of the topic; presentation and activities ("Beginning the Topic"; "Developing the Topic"; "Culminating the Topic"); provides nine focus questions and a sample vocabulary; suggests extended and correlated activities and a 24-item resource list; offers a resource list for other topics; and visual and performing arts resources. Appended are U.S. President Thomas Jefferson's instructions to Meriwether Lewis. Suggests 10 class periods for lesson implementation. (BT)
