Summary

America's History Through Young Voices contains diaries, letters, and essays, written by young people from selected periods of American history, that will enhance and enrich a traditional social studies/history curriculum.

Children best learn history when it is presented in the form of a story. General and specific teaching activities for each primary source will assist the teacher in the effective use of these materials. American history is taught at 5th, 8th, and 11th grades in public schools. The periods of American history from which the primary sources were drawn correspond to those covered in a traditional social studies/American history class.

The materials in Chapter 1 provide the preservice and inservice teacher with definitions and examples of the different types of primary sources along with instructional techniques on how to use these materials in the classroom. The national standards for Historical Thinking Skills are also introduced and discussed. Specific instructional strategies were developed for each of the primary sources based upon the five categories of historical thinking skills. Teachers thus have both the primary source (content) and instructional activities (skills) for use in the classroom.
