The "Leadership in Jamestown" and "Jobs in Jamestown" teaching scenarios were adapted from the work of Mickey Hickman and Erin Wigginton.* Mr. Hickman is the author of Catch Them Thinking in Social Studies, Simon & Schuster, 1999, an approach that uses cross-curricular and problem-solving techniques. The other teaching strategies were devised by Dr. Cheryl Mason and graduate students in the University of Virginia Curry School of Education.
