eHistory101.com is a project presented by SlaveryMuseum.org by Esha Thornton and designed to empower educators and home schooling parents with free web based tools for teaching historical slavery. Resources are aligned to standards as outlined by the Pennsylvania Standards Aligned System for social studies and history, and the national technology standards for K through 12 education.
Welcome to the eHistory 101 Self Paced Web Workshop – Teaching Slavery Using Web 2.0 Tools. At the end of the four modules, in approximately three hours, you will:
Compare Web 2.0 tools.
Summarize Web 2.0 and Web 2.0 tool usage.
Assess the most effective Web 2.0 tools for your lesson plan.
Locate three appropriate Web 2.0 tools to integrate into your original slavery lesson plan.
Format your plan to share with colleagues through the Pennsylvania Standard Aligned System Website and Google Drive.
