SHS AK Studies

for students of Alaska History and Cultural Studies at Sitka High School

For God & Tsar

We are in our examination of Russian America.  Students have explored maps of the Russian exploration of Siberia and Alaska.  This was accomplished through use of the Library of Congress’ Meeting of Frontiers website, the SHS library lab, and the smart board in the classroom.  At present, we will be looking at David Nordlander’s For God and Tsar booklet on Russian America, which gives us a concise overview of the time period.  Students will be comparing Nordlander’s work to the writeup in their textbook by Ryan Madden.

Students need to bring the Ryan Madden book to class on March 1-3.

Further concise histories of Russian America are located online within the Alaska History and Cultural Studies website.  See the Russia’s Colony section.
