My History Fix


Stories matter.  I love hearing good yarns, well told tales.  I relish the stories of real people.  2014 marks the 100th anniversary of Montana Women getting the vote.  One of the sites for great glimpses into stories about Montana women is at Montana Women's History.  http://montanawomenshistory.org/

Teaching Montana History http://teachingmontanahistory.blogspot.com/ by Martha Kohl.  Is another favorite blog.  She shares lots of resources, many that would be applicable to other parts of the country.

Teaching History. org http://teachinghistory.org/  is a site I'm sure many are already familiar with.  If not block out some time and enjoy.  It is a site that I go to frequently.  The History Project http://historyproject.ucdavis.edu/ is full of resources for teachers.  

I've already shared Montana Moments http://ellenbaumler.blogspot.com/ by Ellen Baumler.  I lover her humor.  It always amazes me the gems she shares.

History is fascinating. I have always felt that somewhere before they graduate students should be immersed in their state and local history. It is some little known facts that make a state what it is.

I love history...and the closer to home it is...the more I like it. That is why I love reading family stories so much. They are full of color and give us an idea of what life was like at that time and place.
