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.

Hartem,
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...

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 propriƩtaire 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.
