Welcome to "Colonies" - part one in an American History unit study!
In 1996 I was trying to plan an American History unit study that I could use for my twins when they reach high school age. I wanted to cover not only American history events, but also art, architecture, music and literature. I believed that these were a "reflection" of what was going on in society at various points of time and that they needed to be included in the study of history.
The military moved us very suddenly that summer and I didn't get a chance to continue writing the unit study. As I write this today, we are studying world history for the next year or so - but I am continuing to think ahead to when we hit American history - and if I should continue to write this unit study. I was using several textbooks as resources and I refer to them often.
You may feel free to use this 4 week unit (it is really a 5 week unit but 4 weeks are shown) in any way you want AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT SELL IT OR PUBLISH IT WITHOUT MY PERMISSION . In other words, you may print it up to share with a friend (or 10 friends) or share it with a homeschool support group - or even use it in a Co-op! However, since I am considering whether or not I have the time to finish writing this (and whether it is worth the time to write it) and may therefore include these items in the unit study (should I publish it) - you may NOT publish it without my permission!

North America includes a vast variety of cultural traditions. Cultural traditions show up in festivals, landscape design and structures, and symbols. Multiple cultures must coexist, so conflicts must be resolved. For this lesson, you will need: Long roll of brown paper Paints, markers, magazines to cut up, scrap material, and so on for creating illustrations on brown paper Tacks or other means of mounting the long roll of brown paper on a wall To underscore the special quality of the city, suburb, or rural area we all call home, and in the tradition of the great Mexican muralists, tell the class that they will jointly create a mural in celebration of their home (city, suburb, or rural area).

Development Studies
Courses in the Development Studies Stream have been selected to provide students with a broad, interdisciplinary education focusing on the conditions and problems of less-developed countries comprising the so-called "Third World", the history and theory of economic development around the world, and the geographic and environmental consequences of "development".
The recommended courses in this stream include examinations of specific aspects of third world development in all of the disciplines involved in the program. These include courses in the history of European expansion and colonialism, anthropology and sociology courses dealing with comparative cultural and social change, history, political studies, geography and economics courses which deal with specific regions of the third world and courses which discuss in a broad international context issues of particular importance to development (resource use, the environment, urbanization, health, gender, indigenous issues, and agriculture). Courses of particular relevance from the Departments of Native Studies, Women and Gender Studies and Community Health and Epidemiology are also included.
Students specializing in this stream will also have the opportunity (and will be strongly encouraged) to study aspects of development in field courses and study abroad programs held outside of Canada. These currently include opportunities to study in Central and South America and Africa. With the approval of the Coordinator of the International Studies Program, such courses may take the place of recommended courses in this stream.

Printer friendly page November is Native American Heritage Month
As proclaimed by President George W. Bush on November 1, 2002, this month is National American Indian Heritage Month. Activities and programs all month long will highlight the roles of American Indians and Alaska Natives and their part in our nations’ history. With the construction of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian, comes the chance to educate all Americans about their culture. This month serves as a much needed reminder to recognize the efforts, and most importantly the struggles, of Native Americans to find comfort in a society whose beliefs severely contrast their own.
Regardless of the how and why, it still stands that people like Sakajawea and her contribution to the ‘Voyage of Discovery’ led by Lewis and Clark, and the Navajo Code talkers who helped our nation and the allies secure a victory in World War II, were remarkable in their efforts. Our government is working to maintain the legacy of American Indians and Alaska Natives by preserving irreplaceable languages, cultural traditions, and continuing to honor tribal sovereignty. During the month of November, there will be several programs celebrating the Native American culture. Join in and learn something new about an antiquated society.

About the AGSL
The American Geographical Society Library, a major reference and research library devoted to the acquisition, analysis, preservation, and retrieval of the literature of geography, cartography, and related fields, is considered to be outstanding among the world's leading geographical libraries. The rich collection of materials, comprehensive range of serials, monographs, pamphlets, maps, atlases and photographs, and remarkably easy access to these holdings through extensive analytical cataloging allows researchers, faculty and other patrons to retrieve desired information in a relatively short time. The Library
The scope of the library is broad, encompassing all aspects of geography, cartography and selected facets of related disciplines such as history, anthropology, archaeology, sociology, demography, economics, geology, oceanography, meteorology, urban studies, travel, discovery and exploration, and materials on human beings as builders and despoilers of the environment. One of the AGS Library's strengths throughout the years since its founding in 1852 has been its unusually complete sets of geographical periodicals (approximately 130,000 volumes), especially early foreign publications. Prof. Chauncy D. Harris and Jerome Fellman stated: "The leading American library in recorded holdings of older geographical serials, those which began publication before 1950, is the library of the American Geographical Society....For recent geographical serials the American Geographical Society and the Library of Congress have an impressive lead over all the other libraries in the United States...."

Project on Internationalizing the Study of American History Report on Planning Conference I A Joint Project Organization of American Historians and New York University [Report by Thomas Bender] Villa La Pietra, New York University in Florence, Italy July 6-9, 1997 This planning meeting was organized under the auspices of the Organization of American Historians and the International Center for Advanced Studies at NYU, with additional financial support from the American Council of Learned Societies. Thomas Bender of NYU's History Department and director of ICAS was responsible for arranging the meeting. Its participants included Americanists from the United States, Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia, and its agenda was to develop a strategy to advance an international perspective in the study of the history of the United States, thus situating the United States more fully into the larger transnational and global context, with the intention of revealing more clearly the multiple histories that constitute the American experience, each with different relations to the established geographical boundaries and to historical time. The Distinctive Work of the Conference Although everyone participating was sympathetic to and had been a beneficiary at one time or another of various efforts to establish networks, exchanges, and discussions among U.S. and foreign scholars of the United States, this meeting did not have that kind of organizational mission. Its work was in the realm of ideas. Specifically, its work was to give articulate form to an idea vaguely on the horizon that promises an important expansion of contemporary historical practice. Given a growing consciousness of living in a global age marked by the extreme international mobility of people, ideas, and money, the aim of the meeting was to define a history that would better explain the making and the experience of that world.
