Settlement Unit. Using Primary Sources in the Classroom.
Alabama Dept. of Archives and History, Montgomery.
This teaching unit, "Settlement Unit,"which focuses on the settlement of Alabama's land, is the second in 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 strategies, suggested activities, and documents. This unit is divided into four sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Lesson 1: From Territory to State" (Alabama Governors; Capitols of Alabama; 12 primary source documents); (3) "Lesson 2: Frontier Justice" (seven primary source documents); and (4) "Lesson 3: Alabama Fever" (one worksheet; one primary source document).
