Unit, Other


In Time & Place is a growing library of teaching materials for classroom, distance, or home use focusing on selected topics in American history. You will find many traditional reading, map, and photo related resources, but you will also find GIS (Geographic Information System) data and activities as well. All of the materials can be used individually or as a whole to build a unit on each topic in a way that best suits your and your students' needs. There are suggestions in some cases that the materials are well suited to group work or jigsaw type sharing activities. But these are not pre-packaged lessons; rather collections of resources that you can adapt to your style and specific classroom needs.

Reviewer Comments:

This resource includes a series of lessons on topics in American History that integrate the use of the Geographic Information System (GIS) into the activities.  The GIS gives students the opportunity to explore and analyze geographic data about our world.  In addition to the GIS activities, there are traditional images, readings, and maps used in the lessons.  Topics of study include the Cherokee Removal, the Dust Bowl, and Japanese Internment.  It should be noted that internet access is necessary in order to use the GIS online software.
