Unit Overview
Title                              Early Settlers of Washington State: Shaping a Culture.

Unit Summary                       Students will learn about the various cultural societies who contributed to
                                   making Washington the community it is today. They will apply inquiry skills,
                                   and communicate their learning through Inspiration, Excel, PowerPoint and
                                   Word to create a personal resource of information to revisit and share.
Essential Academic Learning Requirements:
Reading GLEs: The student reads different materials for a variety of purposes. 3.1 Read to learn new
information. Reading 2.1 Demonstrate evidence of reading comprehension. State the main idea of an
informational/expository text passage and provide 3 or more text based details that support it.

Social Studies: History 1: Student Examines and understands main ideas, eras, themes, developments,
turning points, chronology, and cause-effect relationships in Washington State History. H 1.2 Understand
events, trends, individuals, and movements shaping Washington State History. 1.3: examine the influence of
culture on Washington State History
Economics 1: students understand the impact of scarcity on their personal lives and on the households,
business, governments, and societies in which they are participants.
 E1.1 Understand that the condition of scarcity requires people to choose among alternatives and bear the
consequences of that choice.
 Geography: 3. The student observes and analyzes the interaction between people, the environment, and
culture. 3.3 Examine cultural characteristics, transmission, diffusion and interaction.

Writing: 2. The student writes in a variety of forms for different audiences and purposes. 2.3 write in a variety
of forms including journals, essays, and research reports.

KSD Curriculum Frameworks (or SLOs):
Writing Focus: Writes clearly and effectively narrows topic and selects relevant details to elaborate.
Synthesizes information from more than one resource, especially for informational writing or to respond to a
question or prompt (3.1, 1.1)

Social Studies Targets: Who were the first people of Washington and how did they use their environment to
meet their basic needs?
        o Who were the cultural groups who immigrated to Washington prior to 1889 and how and why did
            they come, and where did they settle?
        o Examine the challenges and the conflicts the settlers faced.
        o Identify economic opportunities that encouraged settlers to relocate in Washington. Explain how all
            regions specialize in different economic opportunities.
        o 2.2.1 Observe and describe the human characteristics of the local area and Washington State
        o 3.1.1a Identify choices individuals have in how they interact with the environment

KSD Technology:
    Student Tech Standards: I. Student as information navigator a. Information acquisition: use online and
    electronic resources to communicate, collaborate and retrieve information.
    Technology incorporated into the lesson plan would be:
     interactive map that shows where various cultural communities settled in Washington State
    compare and contrast map illustrating a Native American tribe of WA State with another settler group
    such as the Finnish or Asian cultures
    electronic document Journal created in PowerPoint with questions that encourage writing about cause
    and effect relationships pertaining to the settling of WA St
    Research Folder with web links appropriate for their research assignment.
Learning Outcomes (Enduring Understandings) – (relates UBD worksheet 5.1)
Students will learn that there are diverse communities that make up the culture of Washington State; the
diverse immigrants who settled prior to 1890 and Native Americans. The rapid population growth between
1800-1890 witnessed cultures coming together and natural resources fostering a robust economy. The rapid
coming together of different cultures impacted the Native Americans already thriving in Washington. As
students learn about the development of Washington as a state and diverse culture, students will learn to apply
the skills note taking, organizing data with thinking maps, reading from a variety of resources to collect
information. Students will write essays in their journal about how the culture was impacted by rapid growth,
thriving industries as an emerging multicultural society; cause and effect questions will touch on this theme.
Students will work in cooperative groups, present information to their peers and use a variety of technology to
gather and be assessed of their learning.
Please note, a unit on Washington State Native Americans is pre-taught prior to the lesson.
Overarching Essential Question(s) – (relates to UBD worksheet 5.5 and/or 6.3)
       Why do people leave their home and find a new one?
       How can people influence a place they’ve settled?
       What attracted immigrants to various regions of Washington State?
       How can the state of the economy influence growth?
       If you put many people of different cultures together in one place would you expect that they get along?
        Why or why not?
Evidence of Learning Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the impact of rapid growth
in Washington State as it developed from a territory and rapidly grew to statehood. The Students
will produce a journal on PowerPoint. Many of the entries will require the student to describe
changes in Washington as it develops into a territory and state. Students will be asked to
examine cause and effect relationships between events that occurred during the rapid growth
of the area based on cultural changes, economic growth, historical and geographic significance. An interactive
map will be updated by students that illustrates where growth developed, what motivated the growth, and which
settlers came to build.
Management Strategies: Students will have access to computer lab for 45 minutes each day. Instructor will also
schedule the computer carts for the class the during the American Expansionist portion of the unit.
