Gilded Age Through Teddy Roosevelt Warm Up/Review Lessons Using First Day Covers.
This eBook contains nineteen warm up/review lessons for U.S. History. Each lesson is based on the students analyzing the images found on a first day cover (an envelope containing a commemorative stamp, appropriate postmark and artwork). The lessons provide the teacher with strategies to hook students on the topic of study, such as questions targeting the 5W/H as well as analyzing, generalizing, drawing inferences or conclusions, and cause and effect. Images can be projected onto a white board for whole class discussion or printed out for individual student work. Other primary sources (diary entries, letters, resolutions and excerpts from speeches) where appropriate may be included in the lesson, and each lesson has a concluding activity. The lessons can be a quick introduction to a fuller lesson all ready created by the teacher, or it can be a way to provide students with the images and facts needed to remember the history necessary to pass the state standardized test. Lessons include: Yellowstone and the National Park Service, Henry Flipper, Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce, American Bison, Alexander G. Bell and the Telephone, Thomas Edison and Inventions, Statue of Liberty and Immigrants, Samuel Gompers and the A.F. of L., Frances Williard and the WCTU, Jane Adams and Hull House, Susan B. Anthony and the Progress of Women, Paul L. Dunbar and Jim Crow, Booker T. Washington and Individual Responsibility, W. E. B. DuBois and What the Black Man Wants, Ida B. Wells and Lynching, U.S.S. Maine and the Rough Riders, Roosevelt and the Panama Canal, Wright Brothers and Flight, and the Pure Food and Drug Act.
