Otherness of the Past: Exploring Past Leaders & Current Issues in California

http://www.kn.att.com/wired/ca_150/

Description: As residents of California, we can reflect on the ancestors and leaders who influenced the earliest days of our state's past. Who were some of these people? What were their struggles and triumphs? Some people have spoken of an "Otherness of the past." If we compare the past to related issues confronting Californians today, would we find the past to be something "other" than the present? Or is there a oneness linking the past and present? This is the question you will explore as you learn about the lives and contributions of Yee Fung Cheung, Biddy Mason, Dame Shirley, John Sutter, Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, and Camillo Ynitia. Standards 4.2.3, 4.2.8, 4.3.0, 4.3.1, 4.3.3, 4.3.4, 4.4.3
