Learning about the Colonial Period of the United States is an important part of US history. Reading about this period from textbooks is only one avenue towards understanding the cultures, people and events that formed the foundation of our country. I teach two classes of 5th graders in a special language immersion program in San Francisco. With a limited amount of class time, I try to help my students understand the human side of any historical period. To help my students gain a deeper understanding, I hope to be able to provide a journal book for each student. As they explore this time, students will be using the journals to gather information to complete their research projects, but they will also be using the notebooks for an important part of their colonial studies. The journals will be an important part of their research, as they each "assume" a colonist's identity. They will use the journals to record their created background information of their colonist, explore his/her feelings about the events of this period, and to gain an understanding of the many different perspectives, the internal conflicts, and the courage of many colonists, no matter what their beliefs. As in the past, journals and other forms of writing are an important part of communication. The role of technology is an important one in a child's education, but being provided a journal will also instill in my students the importance of communication at another level: written expression. I hope to you will help us purchase 21 journals to be used this year or next.
