13 Good Resources for Social Studies Teachers I recently met an old colleague of mine for breakfast. Steve and I team taught a course together for a couple of years before he retired a few years ago. During our conversation he said to me, "Richard, what I knew you were good at was finding things our students liked." Coming from Steve, whose opinions I hold in high regards, took that as a compliment and as a reminder that I haven't published a good list for fellow social studies teachers in quite a while. Therefore, this evening I sat down and combed through my archives to pick what I think are some off the better free resources for social studies teachers and students. Museum Box is a great tool for creating virtual displays of artifacts that you find online. Mission U.S. offers two interactive journeys through two important eras in U.S. Hip Hughes History is a fantastic YouTube channel that I promoted a few times in 2012. Meograph is a digital storytelling tool that I featured a couple of times in 2012.

I am unable to help locate details about your family, or give translations of your name or nickname into Chinese (a very common request)! I am always happy to hear from people who wish to submit copy permitted texts to the various sites below.
