|Welcome back to school from the
Alabama Department of Archvies and History!
Our goal is to help you bring history alive in your classroom and periodically thoughout the school year we will bring you information, tips, and resources for your classroom through this e-newsletter.
Highlights this month include:
- Alabama History Education Initiative Lesson Plans
- Grandparents Day activities
- Archives Tour Changes
We are proud to annouce the availability of new teacher created lesson plans! Each lesson plan uses a primary source document from the Archives collections and is based on Alabama Course of Study content standards. Alabama classroom teachers created these lessons as part of the Alabama History Education Initiative (AHEI), which is funded in part by the Malone Family Foundation .
