Remember the Migrant Mother photo by Dorothea Lange we viewed last week? CNN has an interview with one of the children from the photo who discusses the impact the photo had on their lives.

Ed mentioned a PBS documentary on the orphan trains. Did a search on NETFLICKS. Their review: "In the 1850s, thousands of homeless children roamed New York City streets in search of food and shelter. Moved by their suffering, a young minister named Charles Loring Brace founded the Children's Aid Society. The charitable group sent the children on trains to rural areas, where families would take in the orphans. By 1929, more than 150,000 neglected children had made such journeys. Their remarkable stories live on in this moving documentary."

Happy Holidays to all. I have been wondering if any of you are using WebLessons? If so, is it a valuable tool? How does it fit with your curriculum and/or this course? If several of you are using it, perhaps we can have a folder sharing thoughts!

PBS is running a program called "Forgotten Ellis Island". It features an interesting look at the screening of passengers including the difficulty of having screeners who did not understand the culture or language of the immigrants. The information about the hospital and its innovative procedures was fascinating. http://www.pbs.org/forgottenellisisland/

The Secretary of the Interior just announced on the Today Show that they are re-opening access to climb to the crown of the Statue of Liberty on July 4th this year for the first time since 9/11. He spoke of the conditions that would be enacted in deciding who would get to climb given the narrow, winding, and steep stairs. It was a Today Show exclusive so I couldn't find any online articles yet to post, but I'd imagine it should be on the Today website soon. http://today.msnbc.msn.com/ The footage of the interior was amazing, so I hope they'll post the video.

Hi all:
If you would like to upload your project to the wiki, please go to the folders section. There you will find your group's own designated folder titled "project--(fill in your district name here)". You can open that folder and then click "upload files" to add your project into it. I will go back later and make a nice page so you can take a look at everyone's fabulous work.
