Description
It is the purpose of this study to present historical data which may be used to relate the concept of community change and development to certain other social studies concepts desirable for children in a third grade; to organize these historical data into a sequential story illustrative of the political, economic, social, and religious changes of Bastrop, Texas; and to show how these historical accounts which date back to 1830 may be used to teach certain social studies concepts of community development to children. It is believed that an exposition of methods for using local historical material for teaching social studies concepts in a third grade may serve as an illustration of the problem of this thesis.
