The beginning of civilization in Sumer : the advent of written communication : a unit of study for grades 5-8 by Joan Parrish-Major( Book )

2 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is a unit for introducing students to the achievements and historical significance of the Sumerian civilization, located in Mesopotamia, "the land between the rivers," in present day Iraq, and reaching back in time to approximately 3500 bc. Divided into 5 sections, the unit's first three sections concentrate on historical readiness activities and concepts, geographical historical awareness, and an overview of recognized "firsts" in Sumerian civilizations. The last 2 sections focus on the most significant achievement of the Sumerians, the development and use of a written language, and provide an in-depth exploration of this ancient writing system and the life of an average scribe. The unit aims to help students develop an awareness of and an appreciation for the uniquely human achievement of written communication, and provides students with a concept of historical firsts, guiding the students to understand the interrelationship between geography, human adaptation, human lifestyles, and historical change. In the first lesson, students create and discuss personal and familial time lines, exploring the concepts of continuity, change, and historical firsts. In the second lesson students examine maps of the present day Middle East and then identify the general area of the ancient Fertile Crescent and the specific area known as ancient Sumer. Activities in the third lesson generate discussion of the importance and unique nature of written communication. In the fourth lesson, students examine a moment in time as they read primary source documents on the life of a scribe and then role play. In the fifth and last section, students examine the evolution of the ancient writing system of cuneiform. (Author/DK)
The scientific revolution : a unit of study for grades 7-10 by Carole Collier Frick( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unit is one of a series that presents specific moments in history from which students focus on the meanings of landmark events. The purpose of this unit is for the student to explore the advances in scientific knowledge made in Europe in the mid-sixteenth to mid-seventeenth centuries. These advances, beginning with Copernicus, radically changed man's basic notions of the very structure of the universe, in which he was no longer the center. The Copernican vision replaced the Ptolemaic notion of an earth-centered universe with a new solar system which had the sun at its center. As this idea gained ground, its supporters like Galileo developed a new method to prove its validity that rejected all unsubstantiated authority, and instead used careful observation and mathematical reasoning. This unit, based on primary sources, introduces students to the contributions of the key scientists of the Scientific Revolution and to their basic discoveries and inventions, using illustrations and short excerpts from their works. Lesson 1 compares the ancient earth-centered universe of Ptolemy with the new sun-centered solar system of Copernicus. Lesson 2 deals with the invention of the telescope, and how Galileo's telescopic observations not only verified the Copernican theory, but also had grave social consequences for the scientist. Lesson 3 focuses on the development of the scientific method by Francis Bacon and Rene Descartes. Lesson 4 expands the scientific domain from discoveries in astronomy and the social realm, to the world of the microscope. Contains 15 references. (Author/DK)
The Enlightenment : a unit of study for grades 7-10 by Carole Collier Frick( Book )

3 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this unit is to explore the ideas and ideals of the 18th century Enlightenment thinkers called the Philosophes, and to understand how they continue to influence basic notions about the nature of man and his world. The unit introduces key members of the Philosophes through short excerpts from their works. The selections illustrate the social concerns of Enlightenment thinkers in society, politics, and education. Through a study of primary sources, the works of Montesquieu, Rousseau, and Condorcet are discussed. Voltaire and the "enlightened despot" Frederick the Great also are introduced, as is the revolutionary "Encyclopedie" of Denis Diderot. The unit ends with the influence of the Enlightenment on the New World through a lesson on Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence. The ideals of the 18th century Enlightenment acquaint students with the vision of the perfectibility of man through the power of reason, which laid the basis for the notion of egalitarianism at the heart of the French and American Revolutions. Fundamental issues such as the basic nature and rights of man are discussed, as is the value of reason over tyrannical authority. This unit also shows the relationship between ideals and their practical application in society. Through the use of primary sources both written and visual, the student is able to experience the age of reason. By learning about the Philosophes, the student will develop critical thinking and inductive reasoning. Contains 13 references. (Author/DK)
Crowning the cathedral of Florence : Brunelleschi builds his dome : a unit of study for grades 7-10 by Linda Symcox( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unit focuses on a dramatic moment in the Renaissance from about 1420 when Filippo Brunelleschi single handedly created, defined, and engineered a new architecture by building the great dome of the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. The dome became the symbol of Florence's grandeur during the Renaissance, and a model for great public buildings. Brunelleschi was among the first to undertake a systematic study of ancient Roman architecture both as a model of the architectural grandeur that he felt had been lost during the Middle Ages, and as a model for spatial organization and large-scale engineering that had been forgotten in Western Europe. He combined his new found knowledge of Roman design and building techniques with his own vision, defining a new aesthetic for his own era. One of the great monuments of western architecture, the dome provides a model for a whole tradition of grand public building. It represents a classic case study of the interaction between the collective energies of a community and the genius of an individual. By studying Brunelleschi's grand vision for the dome to crown the cathedral, the economic and political background against which his dream became a reality, the great competition organized by the city for the commission to build the dome, the engineering challenges which had to be overcome, and the impact of Brunelleschi's work on future generations, students will begin to understand and appreciate the creative surge which took hold in Florence and other parts of Italy during the Renaissance. Contains 11 references. (Author/DK)
