The images and drop-down menus above will serve as your primary navigational tools on the site. Clicking on the main header will always return you to this index page.
The “Blueprints” section features lecture outlines for the unit, the executive summary for the group, and a useful timeline.
The “File Cabinet” contains the Document of the Week, the unit’s Archives, and various related links.
The "Neighborhood" section is akin to the “Context” section of the Viewing America website. Barbie’s neighborhood includes the unit’s musical selections, media resources, and film review.
Finally, the dreaded "Chores" section is your best route to finding the reading and writing assignments for the unit. This section also contains credits for the group.
