I attended this workshop today. Great websites were provided to build bridges to the past. This project is provided by the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies at the Central Arkansas Library System.
www.butlercenter.org (digital collection and educational resources-including Arkansas History lesson plans, etc.) I believe that you may also register for free books for 9th-12th grade-the more free and reduced students you have =more free books.
www.encyclopediaofarkansas.net "The Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture-this site contains entries and related media on all aspects of Arkansas's history and cultural heritage. This site is a work in progress, and entries and media will be added through the year 2010."
These sites are new to me. I hope that you will find these sites beneficial for you and your teachers.
