Getting Started Using American Memory.
Singleton, Laurel R., Ed.
American Memory Electronic Newsletter, n1 Sep 2001
This publication features teaching ideas generated by classroom teachers. For grades K-4, fourth grade teacher, Janet Williamson, has developed "Off and Running with Primary Sources" which describes how she introduces students to primary sources using historical advertisements. Appropriate for grades 5-8, a strategy was developed by Cathy Hix for a seventh grade class to explore American Memory searching for evidence that the class historical fiction readings are accurate. For grades 9-12, high school teacher Arnold Pulda highlights a buried treasure that can be used to introduce students to the collections. In the feature article "The Evolution of a History Teacher," Greg Deegan reflects on the impact of technology in his classroom. In the "Tech Tip" section, "Tips for Searching the American Memory Collections or 'I Know I Found Articles Yesterday, but Where Are They Now!'" Laurie Williams, school media specialist, suggests three basic search strategies. (BT)
