The use of historical records and documents can help students to connect more meaningfully to the past, and lead them to an increased understanding of and participation in their communities. The Regents of New York State have included the use of historical records and documents in their recommendations for the improvement of elementary and secondary education. This report addresses the means by which New York State classroom teachers may network with archivists, librarians, museum educators, and county, town, and village historians in order to improve history instruction. A number of model programs that embody cooperative relationships using documents and records to enhance teaching are described. The report also makes recommendations concerning teacher training, technology, the role of the state, and funding requirements. (DB)
