Goals for a community-based history project. This resource consists of slides created for the Windows on History (which focused on a project culminating in building a website), a graduate course for teachers, supported by the Library of Congress TPS Program at CES. Find more resources on how to organize local history civic engagement and service-learning projects at http://emergingamerica.orgprograms/windows-on-history/.
This quick overview offers suggested rationale for projects, school year work plan, and guiding questions for developing your website overview. Also consider a structure for website. (Most projects will complete only some of the identified components.)
