You might look at Reconstructing the Past for The Reconstruction of German Synagogues: A Technology and Global History Lesson Plan by Stacy Johnson and Lorin Driggs for Grades 6-12, a lesson where "...students explore architecture as a reflection both of culture and history as well as practical/functional considerations. They discuss examples of local architecture they find beautiful or interesting, and their criteria for making such choices. Finally, they study a particular example of architecture and identify its style and design features." The lesson is quite detailed and the general ideas as will as specific activities could be adjusted to meet your needs.

    The Masking Traditions segment alone will take at least one period of browsing...The reading level, vocabulary and concept density is difficult.. and younger students will need some guides.. Loads of discussion points for all of the exhibits, as they often describe concepts that may be alien or appear "strange" to children. The concept of "transformation" as expressed in the masks of North Pacific cultures is one example.

  84. Transitional Justice
    Results (summaries) of a conference on the topic of How Emerging Democracies Reckon With Former Regimes. Who would the participants be in the future if a similar conference were held in 2020? China? Cuba? Students might be assigned to visit South African sites that feature information on the task of "justice" and reconciliation. What levels of adjustments must be made to compensate victims of past abuses? Students can also debate the issue of similar efforts to compensate various groups in other nations and time periods, including the Holocaust and slavery, government sanctioned and enforced segregation or internment. Students could research what individuals had in common (each came from a country which had suffered through a brutal and repressive regime, been liberated, and was obliged to cope with the legacy of that ousted system). Can residents of Central and Eastern Europe and former Soviets who were just emerging from communist rule learn any useful lessons from the Latin American transitions of the previous decade? "A fascinating undertone seemed to dominate the first day of the conference, as the assembled began to describe the experience of their respective nations. In words spoken and unspoken, in skeptical glances and general body language, the Latin Americans and Europeans seemed to be expressing the same thing to one another: the suffering of our people during the old regime and the difficulties resulting from our legacy is far worse than any hardship you endured. Ours is the greater pain; there is little we can learn from your experience."
  85. History Listings
    From the Foreign Language Resources on the Internet class Summer 1997 and Summer 1998. Right! This is a foreign language site. Great practice for K-12 students who are taking a foreign language to integrate their language learning with history. Have students write/produce the report in the language of their choice and deliver/translate the report to you. You could also collaborate in the grading/evaluation with the language teachers. Why shouldn't a student in Latin who translates a primary resource for history be granted "credit" in both History and Latin?

To obtain the full "benefits" of the site, you must register and join a "city" After registering your online must type in your real name, address and other personal information. This might be used as an example in the classroom to show how commercial sites can offer a very attractive front end, but what is it they want from viewers and participants? What are some of the consequences of providing this information in the registration process?

  105. ML World History Page
    See the online resource on the Parthenon. Moving the cursor over the main image map generates a small "pop up" descriptor..(in the Java version). The Parthenon graphic links an information page on the Stature of Athena and a simple click takes you to that page. The stature presented on that page is also interactive. Student can move the cursor over the stature to obtain information on the statue. This new page also places the statue in historical context and features pictures and links to contemporary "city icons." (which will take them offsite). Question sets and suggestions for further study are included for many of the features on this (and other pages).

    With the depth of choices available, several different groups of 2-3 students in several classes could visit the Parthenon site and follow different paths. With time limits and a schedule, you could leave that one computer classroom connected for several school days. BTW, schools which offer Email connections to parents (with Web access at home) could forward the assignment framework and allow them to schedule a time when they can observe and supervise their child and another "visitor." Scheduling such an activity has a number of advantages: it fosters home/school communication and cooperation, it reduces competition for limited time and resources in the classroom and it is a (partial) payback for those financial investments made by parents (their taxes and computer purchases). Naturally, students without a home computer can be paired with those that do, or assigned to groups that would prefer to do the assignment at school.

    A final point about these activities.... Most of the teachers I talked to at the Cincinnati Convention and the studies of current projects indicate that students enjoy the combination of computer with the social.. Group/paired interactive activities involving technology and face-to-face discussion with others is most desirable by students in "pilots." So....put the "social" back in Social Studies.

    Plans for other resources on this page include: Cave Paintings, Healing Arts, Measuring Time, Guillotine, Popular Entertainment, The Twenties, Environmentalism. If these are added soon...this will be a "showcase" site in the Com domain.

  106. Visions
    Recent Documentary Photography: South Africa (Images of the Soweto Student Uprising, 1976), Russia (From the Life of Gypsies), Algeria (Women and Islam: Struggles for Tolerance in the Face of Fundamentalism), Nigeria (Children Under Pressure), China (Mountain Folk of Yunnan), Iran (The Face of a Changing Country), United States (A Bronx Family Album).

A second click on the "Balfour Declaration" generated a page on the background, including links to many people and events. Some of the links will require a sound card and speakers. This is a site with considerable depth and should be a key resource for events, people and nations of the area.
