Creek Indian War, 1813-1814 Unit. Using Primary Sources in the Classroom.
Alabama Dept. of Archives and History, Montgomery.
This teaching unit, "Creek Indian War," is the first of a series of 10 units about Alabama state history, part of a project designed to help teachers integrate the use of primary source materials into their classrooms. Although the units are designed to augment the study of Alabama, they are useful in the study of U.S. history, world history, and the social studies in general. Each unit contains background information for the teacher and consists of several lessons. Lessons contain learning objectives, suggested activities, and documents. This unit is divided into three sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Lesson 1: The Creek War--Return to Nativism or International Pawn?" (General Suggestions for Analyzing a Written Document; eight primary source documents); and (3) "Lesson 2: Geography Determines History" (General Guidelines for Analyzing a Map; Blank Alabama Map; four primary source documents). (BT)
