Used by Living History Participants
The purpose of this page is to share the various techniques
that teachers of living history use in their programs. One of
the goals of the Foundation is to develop, through collegial
sharing of ideas and resoures, a greater numer of living history
programs in New York State. We also want to continue to explore
the nearly endless possibilities open to students and teachers
of livng history and further expand the existing programs.
To this end, we encourage all teachers
of livng history to share with us the techniques that they
over the years. We
at the Foundation would like to utilize this space for a kind
of "How do I..." help feature. We would like to encourage
teachers just starting out and to support those who have been
in the trenches for years.
If you have something that you would
like to share with us, whether is was a technique that worked
or didn't work out the
way it was anticipated (it's always good to know what might not
work ahead of time), you can email it to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some techniques (lesson
plans too) from teachers who have done courses with the Foundation.
These are in no particular order. There are more to come in
the very near future.
