Summary: The Montana Historical Society's NEH-funded project, Montana Mosaic: 20th-Century People and Events, provides teachers and students with unparalleled historical research and access to images, still and moving. Each story provided through this project explores topics heretofore inaccessible to Montana educators and students in grades 7-12. The stories combine historical photographs from the archives of the Montana Historical Society and KUFM-Montana PBS, and original footage and oral history interviews to illustrate each chapter. Montana Mosaic is based on six main themes that connect Montana events with national and world episodes: industrialization and deindustrialization, relocation and dislocation, ethnic migration, federalization, environmentalism, and progressivism. The unique stories told in Montana Mosaic reveal Montana's connections to both national and international histories. According to the National Council for the Social Studies,"the primary purpose of social studies is to help young people develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world." To that end, the three primary objectives of Montana Mosaic are: to provide teachers and students with access to primary source material; to facilitate rigorous, intellectual inquiry and discussion of 20th-century topics; and to explore the interdisciplinary nature of the social studies while learning to formulate, articulate, and posit questions in regard to civic responsibility.
