History Sources Group

Hello everyone, it's great to meet you. I'm a history teacher in Australia who also teaches American history. I look forward to sharing ideas and resources with you.

I belong to a group for history teachers to share online sources, teaching ideas and resources with each other at http://groups.diigo.com/groups/history-teachers. We'd love it if you came along and joined. I've also added this group to our bookmarks so hopefully traffic will be increased both ways.

Good luck in the new academic year up there! Regards,

David Hilton

Senior History Teacher

Sheldon College, Capalaba, Australia.

I think the resource is amazing.  My favorite part was the general history teaching sources.  I thought the class timeline was really a powerful assignment.  It seemed so elemental, but in the midst of everything, I completely forgot that something like that can be done with little in terms of extraneous planning.  It can turn out to be a very worthwhile assignment with much in the way of differentiation.  I bookmarked the site, so thanks for the suggestion!

I love the international aspect of eNotes.  Teachers of the world unite! :-)  I teach AP US History in the United States, Washington State to be exact.  I also work on the side for the College Board that administers the AP program, so if you also teach AP, let's talk.  Even if you don't, let's talk.  Thanks for creating the group.

I uploaded a document on eNotes.com that makes big use of an Australian scholar: Graham Seal.  That document is "Teaching Reconstruction to High School Students."

I tried your Internet address in post #1; Google says 'no such thing.'
