New Websites: PA History for teachers

Posted by on March 17, 2006

We would like to announce that the department of Education and Interpretation has mounted two new web site curriculum units, one under PA ethnic history on the Irish and one on the Pennsylvania Abolition Society. We hope you will explore them both. Even if you are not a teacher, you may find these of interest since there are many primary source photographs and documents mounted there.

For Irish, go to:

For PA Abolition Society, go to:

Our web site curriculum units introduce teachers to themes, approaches, and resources in Pennsylvania history. Under ethnic history, topics are explored in four specific themes: Settlement, Work, Community, and Interethnic Relations. Lessons and activities are built around primary source materials from HSP?s collection and are designed to help your students learn to begin thinking like historians.
