Overview:

In teaching both U.S. History 1 and 2, I wanted to present students with a academic activity that would engage them in doing individual research, and presenting a creative, summay project.  The trick was finding a topic that would attract student's attention.  In reviewing a Gilded Era book, I was impressed by the number of inventors and invetions from 1868 to about 1930.  And if I was itnersted, then I imagined the students might also be interested.So I drafted a list of both inventors and inventions from 1868 to about 1930, and had students select one inventor/invention from the list to research.  My goal was to have students complete a power-point including background of the inventor/invention, uses for the invetion, and effects of the invetion on today;'s world.Students were able to select at least 1 inventor/invention from the list, and begin drafting quesitons about both subjects and what should be included in their final project.  Following this "think-session" students spent class time in the computer lab researching both inventor and invention and developing a power-point.  Staff facilitated the reserach and project development, in finding reliiable websites, spellling and grammar checks, organization, and in selection of powerpoint features (background, animation, sound, etc)Attached are the list of inventors/invetnions, a graphic organizer to guide the research.and a sample with a rubric.

U.S. History Sourcebook - Advanced
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
4.0 stars
Overview:

From CK-12, U.S. History Sourcebook - Advanced covers U.S. history from Colonial America through World War I. This book provides high school U.S. History teachers and students with sets of primary and secondary sources about important topics. Some teachers will use it as a supplement to a traditional textbook. For those looking to leave the textbook behind entirely, it will provide a course with basic structure and continuity, and will reduce the burden of finding new primary sources for each class meeting. However, it is not yet comprehensive enough to meet the coverage requirements of, for example, an Advanced Placement test.
