We welcome student contributions!
Here you’ll find a three-day lesson plan that introduces students to the online encyclopedia and digital archive. Feel free to try it yourself! We’d love to send our research assistants to conduct this three-day lesson plan, where students will digitize historical documents from home and conduct oral histories with parents, grandparents, and neighbors. We’ll bring all the equipment you’ll need! Contact Jason Stacy (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like our research assistants to conduct this three-day lesson with your US history students. See this SIUE press release about a previous classroom visit if you are interested.
These artifacts were brought by students to be scanned as part of a three-day lesson offered by Madison Historical on April 20, 23, and 24 at Civic Memorial High School. The lesson was given to students in a junior American history class taught by Suze Gibson. Students also conducted four oral histories.
