Background For Teachers:
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Ask students what they know about building and remodeling.
Students will read and discuss background articles on houses through history. Those in the Old House Journal or from Historic Preservation News would be a great beginning.
Create a list of the types of things that old or remodeled houses can reveal.
Using the Dorius House Title Search and Timeline begin to determine what can be learned from such a search. Read the articles on the history and restoration of the house.
Using their own home or a class selection of homes, begin to research the titles and history of the houses. Interview community members who owned, worked on, or cared for the house.
Write a short dated history or timeline of the house.
Create a display of the styles and changes that the house has gone through. This type of display would make a good counterpart to locating other buildings of the community that reveal portions of the local history. Visit a home over 100 years old that is still being lived in today. What has been altered to accommodate the changes in our culture?
Set up a display of old house tools and contemporary house tools.
