Contents: Expansion in the Pacific, The Spanish-American War (Remember the Maine, A Splendid Little War, A Gift from the Gods, The Boxer Rebellion, The Panama Canal, U.S. Intervention in Latin America).
  30. Spanish - American War Preview Page

  31. Panama Canal Unit
    Another Triton Project -- students research (centered on a proposal to expand the Canal) the geography, structure, and history of the Panama Canal, especially the US role in the Canal. They must also investigate the marine life on both sides of the Canal in a form of environmental impace study. They must present their findings in the form of a Hyperstudio stack or ClarisWorks presentation justifying or criticizing a proposed enlargement of the Canal. Students might also visit the Panama Pacific International Exposition, which was designed as a celebration of the opening of the Panama Canal.

  32. Panama Canal Commission Home Page
    A massive and wasteful graphic loads first on this page. Turn your graphics off on the browser to see the two links on the main menu. I am also very critical of the "History" part of the page that omits the story of how the Canal was acquired by the US. It begins with "Among the great peaceful endeavors of mankind that have contributed significantly to progress in the world, the construction of the Canal stands as an awe-inspiring achievement." and follows shortly with "The French labored 20 years, beginning in 1880, but disease and financial problems defeated them. In 1903, Panama and the United States signed a treaty by which the United States undertook to construct an interoceanic ship canal across the Isthmus of Panama." I wonder why they neglected to explain what a US battleship was doing in the waters outside of Columbia on the eve of the revolt that led to Panama's birth as a nation. Since this is a site that is likely to be visited often in the near future, it needs a massive introduction of historical fact to erase a false and misleading set of conclusions.

  33. Lesson Plan: The Age of Imperialism
  34. SARA - CTS Sewer Discharge Page
    Report of Shop, Factory, Mill or Industrial Establishment -- 1903. Look for downloadable lessons and graphics of the report -- a law of 1903 that required Industries discharging any waste material - chemical or human - to file a report and identify what they were putting into the rivers or streams. You will need to download the 3 BMP files to print the entire document. Allow some time, as the servers seems busy.
  35. Projects on the WWW
    A launch page for a number of "turn of the century" resources, including the above Centennial page above, others by the author and some offsite resources on the Web. These include: "Anti-Imperialism in the United States, 1898-1935", Imperialism: "The White Man's Burden" and Its Critics" and Its Critics, Mark Twain on the Philippines, The War from a Parlor: Stereoscopic Images of the Philippine-American War and Soldiers' Letters Home and Images from the Philippine-United States War. There is a Centennial site at Geocities that flashes that intrusive ad at the top that must be closed. It is worth the visit once the commercial window is closed. The Anti-Imperialism in the United States, 1898-1935 site recently expanded to include additional historical texts and literature that document the organizations formed in 1904 and 1905 during a split within the Anti-Imperialist League, the League's response to warfare in the Southern Philippines in 1906, and the campaign against Philippine independence launched by the American-Philippine Company in 1913-1914.

  7. Voices from the Dust Bowl Home Page
    This is one of those sites that can create a lasting impression on students. I entered the menu at the "Migrant Experience", browsed the table of contents and and clicked on "Skip to My Lou" and "Barbara Allen" songs. The recordings sound like someone was kicking the mike, the record skips and repeats brief phrases and sections. But this is the way my "78s" played anyway. There are still folks in many parts of this country that enjoy the company of their fellow neighbors and workers and celebrate this with song, dance and conversation.

    Featuring a fine lesson by Kerry C. Kelly, a teacher at Hunterdon Central Regional High School in Flemington, NJ. I especially liked this part:
    "6. Locate the music and lyrics of "Don't Drink the Water" from the Dave Matthews Band album "Before These Crowded Streets." Distribute copies of the lyrics to the students and play the song for the class. While the song is playing, instruct students to underline powerful lines or draw images that come to mind for each verse. After the song is over, ask volunteers to describe the images that came to mind. Discuss the meaning of the song and the historical comparison to the Dawes Allotment Act and the Rogers case file. Instruct students to find other examples of songs, movie clips, or art works that reflect the Indians' struggle for land and their way of life during U. S. history. Students should present their selections to the class and explain why they chose them."

  39. First Lady of the World: Eleanor Roosevelt at Val-Kill
    This is an excellent "stand-alone" lesson, but it might be combined with a comparison-contrast exercise on Mrs. Clinton, Princess Diana or Lady Bird Johnson. I am reminded of the Lady Bird contribution every time I visit Texas (which is frequently) and see the results of her efforts at highway beautification. Other states should take note... as sometimes it is as simple as forming the concrete on bridge/highway intersections with the outlines of the state.

Classes with students who need practice in reading (they all do) might easily fold one or two of these in for each class period. The other noteworthy element is the general topic on the site - Labor History... a topic that is often shortchanges in some texts.

The project will continue as there are over 30,000 cartoons in the collection! "This work will continue for several years. It provides students with an opportunity to perform community service, use computers for other than word processing, learn how to write and to be published in HTML, and to be a contributing member of the World Wide Web community. Students claim that they learn more from the cartoons than from the textbook. There is something to be said for doing history rather than reading history."

The most popular educational offering at the Roosevelt Library is a game called: Secret Agents in the Oval Office.

  21. American Cultural History - The Twentieth Century
    From the Kingwood College Library. Just when I thinks I've seen everything on the Web or have some measure of how useful it can be in teaching and learning! Here is a page that opens the entire scope of cultural history for k-16 students and teachers. You may not throw the written text away, with the political/military focus and those little side-bars-after-thought additions on cultural history. This may help to overcome some of the bias of "traditional" texts by offering a large page on each of the 10 year segments from 1900 to 1980, and each each period includes the categories of : Art & Architecture, Books & Literature, Fashion and Fads, Education, Historic Events & Technology, Music, Persons & Personalities, Theater & Film. And, this is not the only guide produced by the Library. Visit the "Subject Guides" before you leave. I found "A Chronological Subject Guide To AMERICAN POPULAR MUSIC BEFORE 1900" while looking over the subject guide.

    dylan.jpg "Were the Sixties the best of times or the worst of times? Did America evolve as a nation and we evolve as individuals? Are we better for the experience?" The exhibition will let the viewer decide on the questions, based on the documents and graphics. I found the Special Purpose Telegram Blank No. 74/AG. from the Marvin Tatum Collection of Contemporary Literature to be the highest impact document. The "fill in the blank" format with the red typeface for Vietnam can generate a host of discussion questions: Should a state that has demanded the highest possible sacrifice from a citizen recognize that ultimate sacrifice with a form letter to the relatives and survivors? Why was the color red used by the military to stamp "Vietnam" on the form?
    In addition to Vietnam, the site examines the roots of the 60s with pages on 19th and 20th Century Precursors, The Beats: New York and San Francisco, The Black Mountain Poets, Ken Kesey & the Merry Pranksters, Timothy Leary, 1967, 1968, 1969, The Civil Rights Movement, Rock Music, New York Weighs In, Social Protest, Illicit Drugs, Hippies, Four Radical Groups, Protest at the University of Virginia, Woodstock , Posters and Rock Handbills.

    The RETRO Card Rack

    RETRO is a web magazine celebrating classic popular culture of the first three-fourths of the 20th century. Topics include entertainment, politics, design, decor, fashion, roots music and more. I enjoyed the RETRO's song of the week:"Big Mama's Door" by W.C. Handy. You can also listen to music while browsing. See the Music Archive link and make a selection (from a LARGE listing). I left the music in the background to explore the site further and then opened another browser window to continue the session at other sites. This site and many others appearing on the Web successfully merge education and entertainment. So join the fun. No one will hear you yodeling along with the Sons of the Pioneers, Tex Ritter and others. I think the students would be interested in hearing Blue Yodel Blues by Ray Whitley, who also wrote the classic song, "Back in the Saddle Again."
    You can also send a card from the "The RETRO Card Rack. Choose your graphic from Pulp Magazine Covers or 1920s Sheet Music Covers. The site does not actually send the card. It sends an Email address to the person you designate and they are notified where and how to pick it up.

Have the students bring cameras/video and produce an online rendition for comparison with this site. You might have them convert the web site to a story board and use that to guide the students "photo journalists" on the field trip. The results should showcase changes in newspaper production and in American society, since the newspaper is a reflection of society.

This site provides a visual history of one of the household products we all use. I can visualize those tins in the medicine chest. Do you? While I am rambling on, a friend of mine and former teaching partner has a photo collection of neon signs in Milwaukee from the 1940's to the 1980's. All we need is several thousand dollars seed money to press the collection on a CD and market it for the world to see and enjoy. So we have the ideas and the materials, you supply the rest. OK?
  80. John Muir Day Study Guide - John Muir Exhibit (Information Center for the Environment - ICE)
    Does your state mandate the teaching of various topics in the classroom but fail to deliver with funds and materials to assist/guide compliance with the law? Here is a site that clearly provides that teachers in California will have the resources they need, if they are "wired" and connected to the Internet. (It also makes the resource available for teachers in other states to comply with similar requirements.) There should be no reason why the entire contents of this site could not be made available on a LAN and negate the need for the open Internet connection. Sites/schools/universities that continue to make resources like this avaliable to all on the Web need our encouragement and applause. This guide was produced with the idea that it may be used throughout the school year and help to set a tone of caring about the environment. Using this idea as a template, let's enlist the cooperation and support from the other 49 states and assign them a similar "Day" to showcase.

    Representatives from WGBH were at the NCSS Convention in Cincinnati (November 1997) and distributed a "dynamite" timeline and program guide for the People's Century. This 26 part series (in two seasons in April of 1998 and 1999) may prove to be of exceptional value to teachers.

    The WGBH/Television/In Production site provides some additional information on the series, which will include "...26 prime-time hours that look back on how people around the world came together to bring about the triumphs and tragedies of the 20th century. Co-produced by WGBH and the BBC and broadcast ... over a two-year period, People's Century will offer a compelling, chronological look at the most stunning century in history. Fashions, politics, communications, demonstrations, sports, wars, and an unquenchable thirst for freedom...these are the signposts for this exhaustive and exhilarating journey through the 20th century."

    A companion book by Godfrey Hodgson is available from Random House and on the BarnesandNoble site for $65.00.

  82. GulfLINK, Gulf War Illnesses Home Page
    I think you will find this site a goldmine of detailed information and maps about the Gulf War. The site is publishing preliminary reports on any unusual environmental events that may have taken place during the time when American forces were in the area and the specific units and men involved in those events. One would hope that one of the lessons of the War is the need reduce the time between complaints by participants exposed to potential harm and the investigation and remedy response.
