Website Spotlight: Summer of Love


Website URL: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/love/index.html

Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.

++++++++++

I ask the students to work through the following links:

Introduction
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/love/filmmore/fd.html

Take the Online Poll: Would You Have Gone to San Francisco?
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/love/sfeature/poll.html

Looking Back
Read through each of these short pieces, beginning with Sandi Stein and ending with Mary Kasper.

Underground News

The Year of the Hippie
Work through the dates that intrigue you.

Teacher's Guide
Which one of these questions would you give as an assignment to your classmates?
