this looks interesting. what is the cost to use this exhibit? we could use this at a couple schools during the 4 week period.
I would like to participate in this course as well if offered this summer, thank you.
These questions cover the breadth of my American History and Civics classes. I will use them as part of my formative and summative assessments. Thanks.
where can I find documentation to support the facts?
Massachusetts Line clothing for 1782?
We did a write-up on a WWI food conservation poster and during our research, I came across a resource on the Hoover Institution (Stanford University)website: www.hoover.org/publications/hoover-digest/article/6135
You can check out the Gilder Lehrman Collection's poster "Food Will Win the War" here:
I love this assignment. I plan to use it and see how it turns out. Of course I will be citing this website and author of project. I will tell other teachers what a great aid this will be since we are just starting the common core standards implementation. Thanks
5 days on the roosevelt corollary?
Great lesson for close reading of Inaugural Address
Yeah I have this stupid History project but seriously, I found out so many things about Sarah Grimke! Its pretty dang cool!
Correction [in brackets] to a few of the words in the following:
"You will probably laugh when you hear our Uniform is black turn’d up with red, if you do, so be it-it is exceeding by [SHOULD READ 'exceedingly'] neat & genteel & I in particular like it as I have not to buy a new boat [SHOUlD READ 'coat']. I have a certain black goat [SHOUlD READ 'coat'] that was presented to me by [Mr] Knox that answers the purpose very well.
The strikeout on page 4 in, "The Grounds on which we now [strikeout] are strong." should read "possess" which is written over what appears to be the struck out word.
Perhaps it is before my eyes, but I cannot find the poem "What is Wrong?". Where can I locate it?
I teach a NYC history course and most students, let alone adults have no clue that the so-called Manhattan Project originated in NYC....they associate the Project with Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
Previous entry mentioned the role the Russian Revolution played in America's entry. Are there any resources that you can recommend that show this?
The comments on Oñate and Acome do not match the history I understand. The whole tenor of the first paragraph seems wrongheaded containing hyperbole, innuendo and poor factual account.
Please revise the article to represent a more nuanced view of the events. There is plenty of research out there to speak honestly about the events mentioned. A good place to start could be here:
John is the greatest! I have been using these in our classroom as writing prompts or closure activities. They really support student's critical thinking skills!
Where Can I find a link to the poster The Man Is not Bought?
Why is the PowerPoint for this lesson not available?
Thanks for your question. Mount Vernon has a great page on Boucher that can be found here: http://www.mountvernon.org/educational-resources/encyclopedia/jonathan-b....
Good luck and I hope this helps.
Do you have any good sources, either internet or books, for Jonathan Boucher at a 5th grade level? My son was assigned this historical figure for a writing project, and we can find little on him. Our local library has nothing. I have found some internet sites, but many of them are pretty heady for a 5th grader. I am a teacher with a political science minor, and I have never heard of this person. Although I am enjoying what I'm reading, I want something more kid-friendly for my son.
Thanks for pointing out the bad link, Ray. It's been fixed.
I thought this link led to an abridged version. Of Washington's Farewell Address
I have a copy of the power point if you are interested I can send it to you. Feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Sarah- The PDFs should be working now! Thanks for letting us know about this issue.
The commitment is just to have the use and availability of GLI resources.The affiliate school is like a toolbox.You never know when you need a Phillips head screwdriver but it is in the tool box when you need it.There is NO COST to the affiliate program.The assessment is an NEH requirement to measure the effectiveness of the affiliate program for the individual school.It does not evaluate a school,teacher,or students in a school.The GLI staff will send you the evaluation by email and it takes about 30 minutes to complete. We look forward to having your students participate in the essay contest, Ron
Please outline the school's commitment to become an affiliate school.
What is the annual cost?
What does the annual survey entail?
What does "administered by an outside assessment firm" mean for the survey?
My students are interested in entering the Civil War essay contest...
The pdf links are broken and I really need the comparison sheet to do this lesson. Please fix.
Excellent article--one that I will share with my students.
This is absolutly fantastic. I never heard about these ladies!I will definately research more information.
Love it! Very helpful!
Didn't Seward - and his son, Frederick, assistant secretary of state - resign on December 16? Lincoln kept the resignations secret for two days and in fact had the resignations in his pocket when he met with the committee representing the Senate caucus at 7:00 PM on the 18th.
How do I fill out an application to become an affiliate school?
Looks like a wonderful program

Last summer I attended the wonderful "Age of Jefferson "seminar. Upon visting my home to NYC I visited the New York Historical Society. I came across the above, a small pair of slave shackles. I have never seen manacles for children before. Little models of black hands were clamped by the irons. Besides being creepy, I was emotionally stuck and stared at the image for sometime. Last year in the area where I live in Paris, France, I stumbled into an antique shop and saw a pair of 18thc French slave ankle shackles hanging on the wall with an cooper ladle suspended from one of the chain links. How strange is that? The owner informed me they belonged to someone in his family. In order to reconcile my find I placed the shackles on the floor in front of my fireplace, where photos of ancestor grace the wall. I needed to "feel" if the chains were in fact used to contain enslaved African's.....
I have a question about the issue of a"letter of providence". Besides the word of the propriétaire how could one know if my chains are not jail house.
Is there any cost to the school to become an affiliate?
I find these essentials questions so valuable to the process of common core. The questions require students to use their critical thinking skills to formulate answers to these question-no yes/no answers will be a quick fix.
Will this online course be offered again? I would love to participate.
This was an awesome course. Professor Pinsker is a spell-binding lecturer. I have participated in a number of online courses and this was superior. If you would like to find out more about it, take a look at the course blog - link below - where you can see the syllabus, view handouts and videos from the course, see our posts and lesson plans, and the resource list for teachers. Highly recommended if it is ever offered again.
Excellent summary of first administration
It is a very wise choice to have Dr. Guelzo's Seminar on President Lincoln from July 14-20. Trying to have it during the 150th anniversary dates would be a battle in and of itself.
