Levitt, Gregory A.; And Others
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v4 n4 p19-22 Mar-Apr 1992
Provides suggestions for creating thematic units for teaching about the voyages of Columbus. Explains that, to promote critical thinking, the activities are organized into the levels of (1) comprehension and conceptualization; (2) causality; (3) validity; and (4) creative extension. Argues that goals should include understanding European and North American cultures, the explorations themselves, and the consequences of the encounters. (SG)
