For my first official post of the new season, I decided to start with some reminders:
All posts to this blog were originally published on the Montana History and Heritage Education listserv. To subscribe, either "follow the blog" or ask to join the listserv: http://mhs.mt.gov/about/follow.aspx.
Looking for an past post? All posts are “labeled” by category to make it easier to find past posts on particular topics ( i.e., archaeology, teaching with primary sources, National History Day, etc.)
Links to all lesson plans created by the Montana Historical Society can either be found
- on the Educator Resource Page of our website (http://mhs.mt.gov/Education/Educators.aspx) and/or
- through the “For Educator” pages of the Montana: Stories of the Land Companion Website and Online Teacher’s Guide (http://svcalt.mt.gov/education/Textbook/TextbookMainPage.asp).
You can take an online tour of our resources (and earn one OPI renewal unit for doing so) here: http://svcalt.mt.gov/education/Textbook/PDTraining/MSOLtraining.asp.
Finally, a few days remain to apply for a Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation scholarship to attend the 39th Annual Montana History Conference in Helena September 20-22. This year, the conference focuses on homesteading, and it is going to be fabulous.
