Congratulations Elizabeth and Amy!
It's wonderful that you've been able to move ahead so quickly, do so much with
your students, and share the results with us on your website. You being 'out of
the starting gate' so fast gives us ALL a great chance to think about where
we're headed in having kids work with these primary materials.
Calling all fellows! I especially recommend looking at and thinking about:
-- the student work Elizabeth and Amy have posted
-- the 'materials to download' (student handouts, etc.) they've posted
What do you all think? I hope everyone will share their comments and questions
with Elizabeth and Amy, and the group.
Cheers to all -- and Happy Thanksgiving!

Just wanted to touch base with the whole group about the project on which Amy
and I have been working. We had our students chose photographs from the
Mathew Brady collection and analyze them. They then had to research and write
news articles to accompany the photographs. The project went well and we
recently uploaded all of the files. Please take a look at our students' work!
We are in the process of editing our lesson plan and uploading teacher
materials. We'll let you know when those are complete!
