World War I Unit. Using Primary Sources in the Classroom.
Alabama Dept. of Archives and History, Montgomery.
This teaching unit, "World War I Unit," is the seventh 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 eight sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Lesson 1: Power of the Press" (eight primary source documents); (3) "Lesson 2: A Question of Honor: The Selective Service" (16 primary source documents and transcripts); (4)"Lesson 3: Black Alabamians in World War I" (six primary source documents); (5) "Lesson 4: The Home Front: Food Will Win the War" (nine primary source documents); (6) "Lesson 5: Signing Up for Action and Supporting the Action" (10 primary source documents); (7) "Guidelines for Analyzing a Document"; and (8) "Suggestions for Analyzing a Photograph."
