This guidebook provides librarians and teachers with a collection of resources that capture the excitement, danger, and wonder of Colonial America. In this book, Colonial America is defined as the years from 1607 when Jamestown was founded to 1776 when the American Revolution began, following the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The focus of the book is on the English settlements that fought for independence from England and became the United States of America. Packed with a wide array of materials that encourage students to pursue their interests, this resource will motivate them to become actively involved in learning about their past. The first seven chapters contain book annotations grouped by grade levels. These chapters include biographies, fiction, nonfiction, picture books, poetry and songs, reference books, and books for making connections. The appendices include professional resources, electronic resources, information on museums and other organizations, booktalks and classroom activities, and books for building core library collections. By carefully selecting materials for their students, teachers and librarians can turn the study of Colonial America into an exciting exploration of the past.
