Harriet Tubman Integrated Unit. ArtsEdge Curricula, Lessons and Activities.
Van Der Woude, Gladys
Harriet Tubman, a famous Civil War freedom fighter from Maryland, is the focus of this unit that integrates the arts and history. Students will learn about Harriet Tubman through music, art, dance, literature, and reference materials. The five lessons will be models and a springboard for the research projects that the students will complete about other famous Marylanders. The students will use the information they obtain to create their own songs, dances, dramas, and/or art work. They will use those projects to prepare a presentation using HyperStudio--the HyperStudio stacks will be linked together in a virtual Maryland Biography Quilt. The unit can be adapted to focus on famous people from other states, African Americans, famous women, freedom fighters, people involved in the Civil War and/or the Underground Railroad, etc. The HyperStudio stack may be replaced by individual web pages that are interlinked to form a student publication. Each lesson offers an overview; suggests length and grade level; cites subjects and subtopics; lists teacher resources; and addresses National Standards for Arts Education and other standards. Each lesson also identifies instructional objectives and strategies; provides a detailed, step-by-step instructional plan; suggests assessment and extension activities; and lists teacher references.
