Resources from our collaboration with the Santa Clara County of Education on August 26, 2016.
Students learn about technology and exploration preceding and during the time of the California Mission Period. Students work in teams to create a magazine that incorporates both historical information and current events. Standards focus on information reading and writing, as well as science and collaboration.
Students learn about the Ohlone by investigating observations from explorers, missionaries and government during the Mission Period. This culminates with an ethnography project. Standards focus on argumentative writing, reading/writing history, and analysis.
Students examine how native peoples have been historically depicted within culture. This unit provides narrative projects and art exercises, and opportunities to re-define stereotypes and perceptions. Narrative writing and collaborative standards are the focus, and this unit also incorporates visual art.
