My friend Phil, the Bald Blogger, has a nice post on “digital history.” He quotes from a recent Journal of American History essay by William Thomas and the work of historian Steven Mintz, one of the leaders in this field.
Phil mentions Mintz’s Digital History website–a wonderful resource for teachers. After spending some time exploring this site I immediately sent the link to a few of my former students who are teaching high school history. If you are a history or social studies teacher, this website is indispensable–a one stop shop for all your lesson plan needs. Check it out.
P.S. I have not heard from Phil in a few weeks, but he is in our thoughts and prayers as hurricane Ike bears down tonight on his hometown of Houston. Phil: when you get a chance, let us know how you are doing.
