Social studies,history, art, literature and language combine on the EDSITEment website to deliver what National Endowment for the Humanties calls “a treasure trove for teachers, students, and parents searching for high-quality material” that will enrich student learning at all levels. The NEH project provides outreach to schools with a host of curriculum resources designed to foster exploration, support analysis and encourage excellence and creativity in the classroom. Join EDSITEment Program Specialists Shelley NiTuama and Joseph Phelan as they lead this treasure hunt for free K-12 primary sources, lesson plans, and timely feature collections, with a focus on middle school ELA and history. Ohio materials available on the site will also be presented.
