Elementary Lessons from Indiana's Underground Railroad Institute (July 22-27, 2001).
Indiana Univ.-Purdue Univ., Indianapolis. Geography Educators' Network of Indiana.
The Geography Educators' Network of Indiana's 2001 Exploring and Teaching Institute led 23 educators from around the state on a six day traveling adventure. Participants explored art, literature/folklore, historical sites and archives, physical environments, architecture, economics, politics, and cultures associated with the Underground Railroad and Indiana. The Institute traveled from Kentucky to various sites in Indiana, Michigan, and Ontario, Canada. Each participant created thematic lesson materials linked to Indiana and national social studies and history standards. This booklet features 16 of those lessons: (1) "The Civil War through the Eyes of Hoosier Women Sarah Bush Jefferson Lincoln" (C. Crump); (2) "Creating an Abolitionist Newspaper" (M. Groesch); (3) "Heroes and Heroines of the Underground Railroad System (UGRR) (S. Simpson); (4) "Hiddin' Out" (J. Ensley); (5) "History through Picture Books and Photographs" (M.P. Alexander); (6) "Journey on the Underground Railroad" (K. Zahora); (7) "Levi Coffin on Trial" (E. Haury); (8) "Making the Connection with Quilts" (J. Chambers); (9) "People and Places in Indiana's Underground Railroad" (K. Satterlee); (10) "Scrapbook of Freedom" (K. Ehn); (11) "Signs in the Stitching" (K. Anderson); (12) "Silent Signals" (E. Ensley); (13) "Simulated Underground Railroad Experience Part A" (S. Frasch); (14) "Simulated Underground Railroad Experience Part B" (K. Markley); (15) "Spirituals" (R. Thomas); and (16) "That's Not Fair! Human Rights Violations during the 1800s" (K. Korty). Each lesson states grade level; time required; addresses standards; cites objectives; notes materials needed; provides detailed teaching procedures and/or strategies; poses questions for assessment; and offers adaptations and/or extensions.
