Created by Alena Zink and Betsy Cain Forsyth County Schools Google Books The History Project - University of California, Davis The Marchand Archive is an ever-expanding collection of document-based lesson plans (Documentary Source Problems) and more than 8,600 images (Image Archive). This site brings together the original Adventures in Roland Marchand's File Cabinet launched in 1999 and the Marchand Image Archive launched in 2001.

VoiceThread in a 1st-grade Classroom Jennifer Orr: Here we've got George as our first picture. But look what we can do here, are you ready to see this? We can move the pictures around. It's not moving as easily as you'd hoped, huh? We've got George and George with his family and then we've got Ben. Student: I think we should put the battle first. Jennifer Orr: Why? Student: Because he battled first before he was president. Jennifer Orr: Okay. Student: Declaration of Independence first. Student: Because I think he did it first. Jennifer Orr: Okay. Students: No. Jennifer Orr: Do you think that was a really important thing he did? Students: Yes. Jennifer Orr: Come move it. So it’s kind of a neat thing to put after George. Jennifer Orr: And I wanted to spend the time sorting those images both to kind of make sure that they understood the difference between George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. Jennifer Orr: Alright, in just a minute, I’m going to send a few of you off to record your thoughts. Student: This is George Washington.

Ancient World Visualizing Slavery: The Map Abraham Lincoln Spent Hours Studying During the Civil War If you look closely at Francis Bicknell Carpenter’s 1864 painting “First Reading of the Emancipation Proclamation by President Lincoln” (see above — click image for a larger version) you will notice a map in the lower right-hand corner, next to the group that includes Lincoln and his cabinet. The map in the painting was a document Lincoln consulted often during the Civil War. It was created by the United States Coast Survey using data from the 1860 Census to show the geographic distribution of the South’s vast slave population. Carpenter lived in the White House for six months while working on his painting, and according to historian Susan Schulten, author of Mapping the Nation: History and Cartography in 19th Century America, the artist encountered Lincoln poring over the map on more than one occasion. The map (click it to see a larger version) is an early example of statistical cartography. The map helped Lincoln visualize what he was up against. Related Content:

instaGrok.com Three Amazing Resources For History Teachers That Students Will Love You might have noticed that I am a bit of a history and ancient culture addict and that I like to share resources for history teachers here on Fractus Learning. This week, I read two interesting articles that summarize pretty nicely how I feel. This is when understanding and awareness of other cultures and their history help foster learning and spark an initial interest in a topic, especially when that information is presented in a game like scenario. On the one hand The Guardian explores the different ways to offer students international experiences and the benefits tied to these. On the other hand the New York Times published an article that describes a relatively new discipline known as the digital humanities, formerly known as humanities computing. Now, your school might well have one or several international partnerships which is great and allows students to make some real-life experiences in a culture other than their own.
