It's so good to hear from you!
It sounds as though you are doing well and still enjoying your teaching
role. I'm truly happy to hear that. I'd love to hear more about (see?
link to?) your WebQuests.
I'm so glad you continue to "get the word out" about American Memory. We
have partnered and otherwise supported a number of TAH grant
consortiums. Let us know if we can be of help in any way.
I'm sorry we won't be seeing you in Florida, Barbara. I look forward to
seeing you somewhere over the next few years. We are presenting at
myriad conferences and doing more face to face outreach within the
Library and through distance learning.
Please give Bob my best, and again, thanks so much for making time to
send this heartening note.
Although I won't be in Florida, just thought that I'd say hello. I just
finished another web quest using the Learning Page resources--wonderful
Last summer Bob Gabrick and I did a "Teaching American History Grant"
week-long workshop for teachers in La Crosse WI. I was surprised that
entire group had not used (or was familiar with) American Memory. At
point, I just figured that everyone got the word. As part of our
presentation on Reconstruction and the New Deal, we introduced the
resources on the Learning Page, as well as those in the various
collections. (PS The Veterans Project is so terrific too; great gems for
webquests and research projects.)
Since you wrote to everyone, I just wanted you to hear that this fine
resource (and the opportunity I was given in l999 as an AM Fellow) has
benefited so many--teachers and students. I am so glad that I have the
chance to share that wonderful opportunity with others.
Have a happy Christmas,
Barbara Markham '99
