The History Lab

10/25/2009 Leave a comment

In my last post, I shared that one of my goals this year is to help my students become more active participants and contributors in my classroom.  And while I have several ideas of my own about how to make this happen (Class Notebook, Delicious), I have also spent a great deal of time searching for what others are doing.  So I started bookmarking websites only to decide that there has to be a better way.

What I really want is a database that includes all of these great ideas in one place.  One that I can search for inspiration or use to share and collaborate with other social studies teachers.  And since I couldn’t find such a site (at least not one organized in quite the way I envision it), I decided to create one, the History Lab.

My hope is that social studies teachers can use the site as a resource for project ideas.  At the very least, it will grow into the database I was hoping to find as I add more of my finds in the coming weeks.
