Crisis In The Family: Connecticut And The Nation
Your feedback is important to us!
After viewing our curriculum units, please take a few minutes to help us understand how the units, which were created by public school teachers, may be useful to others.
This unit is intended for use by teachers who wish to incorporate a study of the American family into their American history courses. The period for which the material is relevant is the 19th century, but there is special emphasis in Section II on the years from 1866 to 1874 in Connecticut and New England: for this reason the unit may also be used in a Connecticut history course. As well, it may be used in Women’s Studies courses or in courses on the family. If used in its entirety the unit could provide in-class and homework exercises taking up to four weeks or more; however, since it is designed primarily for use in survey courses, selected lessons requiring as little as two or three days can be chosen. While most appropriate for use by students in the eleventh and twelfth grades, some of the material in Section I can be adapted for use in the lower grades.
