NATIONAL CENTER FOR HISTORY IN THE SCHOOLS

20th Century

Using primary sources that focus on "dramatic moments," these lesson plans for document-based activities help students see that history is made when real human beings make difficult choices. The lessons were created by the National Center for History in the Schools, a joint research project of the University of California, Los Angeles, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. They conducted intense summer sessions at UCLA where classroom teachers, curriculum leaders, and historians collaborated under the leadership of Charlotte Crabtree, Gary Nash, and Linda Symcox to produce study units that reproduce primary sources and ask students to think carefully about their implications. Divided into three or more lessons, each 8" x 11" spiralbound unit includes objectives, teacher background materials, source documents (such as photographs, maps, and drawings), reproducible worksheets, guided activities, and bibliographies. ©1991–1999.
