Hello Fellows,

Linda Thompson and I (American Memory Fellows 2000) enjoyed the special fifth anniversary
tribute to
"Today in History" on April 1 at <http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/today/apr01.html>. We are
thinking
about using the idea of linking historical photographs to phrases within student essays on
topics in
history. We thought it would provide our students with a unique way of expressing
themselves while
focusing on excellent writing rather than on pictures. Sort of an antidote to PowerPoint.

We have two questions for the experts:

1. What would be the best way to present student writing with links? Projecting to a
screen? Rotating
kids through multiple computers? Other ideas for sharing learning with classmates?

2. Can you remind us again where we can go to get help saving American Memory photographs
to
avoid the dynamic link problem?

Thanks in advance for your help.

-Mary
