  2. Scottsboro Boys Trial
    "On the night of March 25, 1931, a deputy sherriff posse in Paint Rock, Alabama stopped a freight train travelling from Chattanooga, Tennessee. They arrested nine young black men on the train. They also found two young white women -- Victoria Price and Ruby Bates -- dressed in men's overalls. Price claimed she was raped by six of the young men, while Bates claimed she was raped by the other three. The nine young men, from Chattanooga and various parts of Georgia, ranged in age from 12 to 20. They were roped together and taken to the Jackson County Jail in Scottsboro, Alabama. That night, a mob gathered outside the jail, but the governor sent in the National Guard to protect the young men who would come to be known as the Scottsboro Boys."

    Can architecture impact our lives? Explore this site and see. An editorial note. If we have the ability to create conditions/spaces that leave those who occupy those spaces absolutely helpless to defend themselves and their children, we should also have a responsibility to create visual and physical environments that inspire and nurture. The expectation that a whole segment of our population can somehow rise above an architectural environment that is pored in concrete, and a social/political environment that is almost as hardened, is insane and ignorant.

    There are a host of useful and informative features at this excellent page, as it explores a topic that if often absent or given scant attention in textbooks. This should please those teachers who plan to use the Internet only to cover such topics. For teachers who wish to explore a specific topic in labor history, the weekly schedules at this site provide information to print resources and extensive links to Internet sources. Thus, K-12 teachers interested in Work and Subsistence Among New England Amerindians will locate a "charge"or project assignment to find at least three (3) WWW sites with information on work patterns and/or economic and trade relations of any one or more North American Native American tribes. A topic such as Women and the Household Economy would be linked to documents and web resoruces -- Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, A Midwife's Tale: The Life of Martha Ballard, Based on Her Diary.K-12 students (and the post secondary students targeted here). Your students should also locate information on how to access and critically evaluate the World Wide Web (WWW), film, video and audio resources as research tools. Finally, the page serves as another example of how extensive course materials can be presented on a web page in a creative manner.

    TOC: Military History, Penitentiary History, Native American Occupation, Natural History, Virtual Tour (Text only), Bookstore, Hollywood's Alcatraz, Alcatraz on the Web. Education First: Donner Online
    "Online Donner" is a type of Web-based activity in which you learn about a topic by collecting information, images, and insights from the Internet, and then you "paste" them into a multimedia Scrapbook (a HyperStudio stack or a Web page) to share your learning with others."
    Without a doubt, this site (and earlier productions by the team) could provide a "template" for creative use of the Internet. Tom March and associates assume in this unit that classroom instruction and print resources have provided some overview of a topic and students are guided online (or on the LAN) through cooperative online research, role-playing activities and media production tasks to address "Big Questions" about the topic. Students must think about and evaluate what they have learned and package their findings for publication. Teachers can easily download the entire unit and adapt it to their classroom. Students who have done similar units in the past should (with skilled guidance by the teacher) be able to "process" and evaluate the projects and gain some self-reliance as learners. When you think about it, the team at San Diego that produced this web site is following the "template" and modeling the activities they expect from their electronic students.

The page presents a "Bird's-Eye View of Pre-Fire Chicago" describing Chicago up to the eve of the fire and "The Great Conflagration," which examines the calamity itself. "The Ruined City" is concerned with the extent and nature of the devastation. "Rescue and Relief" focuses on the emergency measures taken to restore order immediately after the calamity, and on the enormous charitable assistance effort that began while the fire was burning and which continued for the next few years. "Queen of the West Once More" traces the remarkable reconstruction of the city..." You might want to visit the Interactive Panorama of Chicago, 1858 (it takes some time to load) Called "Alexander Hesler's Panorama of 1858" (I wonder if a Quicktime presentation would be just as effective?)
