As a way of invigorating the teaching of American history and culture, President George Bush announced a broad government initiative. One of the programs proposed by the president will offer grants for curriculum improvement, making important documents accessible to students and teachers. Primary source material, such as replicas of the Emancipation Proclamation, can help children gain a deeper understanding of our past and the principles that are steeped in our cultural roots. In the words of President Bush: "American children are not born knowing what they should cherish--are not born knowing why they should cherish American values. A love of democratic principles must be taught." Primary Sources--Correlated to the History Curriculum--Provide a Firsthand Look at the Documents that Record the Growth of Our Nation Correlated directly to the high school history curriculum, this series is based on the original historical documents that record the political growth of our nation. Rich with primary sources, these books allow students to see pages from each document as they learn more about the ideas within it. Each document is analyzed in detail and placed within the context of our current freedoms. Help your students see firsthand the evolution of political ideas as they read the revisions that each document underwent before it was accepted. This exciting series brings to life the very ideals upon which the United States was founded. Students will learn the story of the creation of the fundamental structure of our government, based on the concept of the separation of powers between the executive, legislative, and judicial branches, and how our elected officials are chosen to represent us.Documents show how the institutions of our government took shape.
