The unit is divided into four sections each consisting of slides and historical information of approximately the same period.
If the unit is taught as a supplement to the 6th Grade study of Connecticut History it would be most effective to present each section after the appropriate period. The unit may be taught as a course of its own.
In either case:
1. Teacher may read description of architectural period to students or distribute copies of the information.
2. Show slides. Teacher may read description which accompanies each slide.
3. Teacher may read historical information or distribute copies to students who could circle dates or underline information to be placed on time lines.
4. Time line—to be developed after each section. Use architectural periods as basis. Historical information can be filled into columns above time line. See following example.
