I neglected to notice that Susan Veccia wasn't alone. Sorry for the oversight.
Laura Wakefield (AMF '97) wrote the section about middle school students,
and Mike Federspeil (AMF '97) wrote the high school part, and Gail Petri
whote the section for elementary school students... for this book:
Susan H. Veccia, Librarian and Educational Consultant
Uncovering Our History: Teaching with Primary Sources.
American Library Association, 2003. ISBN 0-8389-0862-4. $35.00.
Using primary sources to teach history, which goes beyond rote
memorization of dates and facts, has been incorporated into the
educational standards of nearly every state. For overburdened
K–12 teachers, librarians, and media sspecialists, complying with
those standards is easier said than done. This useful handbook
offers readers practical ways to incorporate these standards into
their curriculum, using the resources of the Library of Congress'
American Memory Web site.
