SS Curriculum Guides - 22 views

  •  
    These are a set of out-of-print guides made by the NYC Board of Education in 1993-1994. They are full of primary sources, short text selections and activities which many teachers have found very useful. Although designed for 7th and 8th grade they can be modified for high school and elementary school. Many teachers have used these over the last 17 years to help them develop their lessons. They are large files so they will take a few minutes to open. Note that both sets follow the same format but the 8th grade guides were done with a modern text style and therefore "looks" much better.

Dan Carlin - Hardcore History Archive - 9 views

  •  
    This is the latest episode from the Hardcore History program, a podcast updated every month or two focussing on historical topics in often novel ways. Dan Carlin has a Bachelor degree in military history and his focus is on military and social history, which I and my students find interesting. I think sometimes his versions of history can be spurious (the latest one in particular) yet the value of podcasts for student learning are enormous. I make my students download iTunes and get them through that. Happy listening!

The Library of Congress' collections on Flickr - 8 views

  •  
    I thought I'd added these already to the group, however the Diigo toolbar tells me I hadn't and he's never to be doubted. Please don't ask how I know the toolbar is male.
    These collections are well-organised and high-quality. Focus on the US (for obvious reasons).

    I'm being lazy. I've been going through and saving these sites individually but I'm sick of looking at them. I'll come back later and finish the job.
    There are heaps of sites there on ancient history.
