The Alabama Constitution of 1901 Unit. Using Primary Sources in the Classroom.
Alabama Dept. of Archives and History, Montgomery.
This teaching unit, "The Alabama Constitution of 1901 Unit," is the sixth 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 objectives, suggested activities, and documents. This unit is divided into six sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Lesson 1: A Map Can Tell a Story" (Map of Alabama; one primary source document); (3) "Lesson 2: Petticoat Power" (General Suggestions for Analyzing a Document; two primary source documents); (4) "Lesson 3: We Have...No Member...Who Can Speak" (two primary source documents); (5) "Lesson 4: An Opposite View" (one primary source document); and (6) "Lesson 5: Voting after the Constitution" (Synopsis of Voting Requirements; three primary source documents).
