Background For Teachers:
Present the students with the Timeline of Utah History. Talk through the events of the timeline, using the Annotated Timeline of Ute History to help add depth to the discussion. Leave out the obvious holes to create a state of disequilibrium among the students.
Ask the students what is missing (if they haven’t already asked you). They will have realized that there are holes in the story you have told. Those holes represent the times when the Ute leaders from this lesson made an important impact on Utah history.
Have students fill in the holes in the timeline using their textbooks, film notes (if students have seen the film), trading cards, and the Ute Leaders Packet provided. Once students have a complete timeline filled in, have them transfer the information to an 11x17 sheet of paper and illustrate their timeline.
You may want to have them insert new events or dates from the textbook or other resources for a
