Grade Level: Middle and High School

The Evanston History Center offers a variety of lesson plans for educators. Many of the lessons here are basic exercises that will help structure a visit to the Dawes House. The exercises are designed to help students focus on specific historical or social aspects related to U.S. History and culture in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They are broken into sections to be conducted before, during, and after a tour of the Dawes House. Each exercise can be adapted to particular assignments and to particular grade levels. Lesson plans can be downloaded in pdf format here.
