lesson plans presented here are intended for use with an online collection
of Wichita photographs known as the Wichita Photo Archives, a joint effort
of the Wichita Public Library Local History Section, the Wichita-Sedgwick
County Historical Museum and the Wichita State University Libraries'
Department of Special Collections.
They are best viewed at 800 x 600 monitor resolution.
Each lesson addresses Wichita Public
Schools (USD 259) Social Studies Standards for the 4th, 8th and
11th grade levels. The activities for each level focus on examining
photographs and extracting information from them in combination
with research and documentation.
The plans were
adapted from those initially developed by an educational consultant.
The initial plans were evaluated by representatives of the Wichita
Public Schools' Curriculum and Assessment department. They may be
us feedback about the lesson plans.
