Walk through the streets of Colonial Williamsburg and learn about the many inhabitants and buildings along the way. This amazing virtual tour through the streets makes it seem like you are there. This site is actually part of the Williamsburg Interactive page, but its value to historical understanding warranted its own TeachersFirst review. Hold your cursor over buildings and the page dims to highlight just that area. Then, you will be given information about that area and its inhabitants. Follow the links to additional web pages for more information. You will need Flash for this site. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): colonial america (108), williamsburg (12)

In the Classroom

If you have a whiteboard or projector, you will have a captivated class. Individual or paired computer experience will allow your students to walk through the streets on their own. How about having a cyber-scavenger hunt? You will need to walk through the town yourself to find tidbits along the way, then later, ask the students to find them. They must give you the location where they were found.

Younger students will need to be shown how to cyber-walk through the streets. You can ask them to report to you about the citizens they meet along the way. Ask students to draw their own colonial town based upon a layout like Williamsburg.

Some of the specific topics include music careers, music and culture, rock-n-roll USA, art, impressionism, ceramics, art history and many others. Most of the PowerPoints are extremely well done, featuring graphics, sound, and a wide selection of information. You may need to have PowerPoint software on your computer to view these files, depending on how the site creators saved them.

EASE History is a novel approach to viewing and learning from historical film clips and photographs. EASE (Experience Acceleration Support Environment) allows students and teachers to search about 600 clips and photos by subject matter, core value subject, and within the special category of presidential campaign ads. Once a category is selected, it is possible to position clips side by side to compare them and discuss, or to thread through a series of ideas by clicking matching icons. The availability of these short film clips is valuable... the interface and ability to draw connections is an added bonus. This site requires Flash. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): advertising (33)

In the Classroom

Teachers can select clips for use on an interactive whiteboard or projector, or students can explore the site individually by following themes or searching under concepts. The site takes a little time to understand, although students may find it more intuitive. Demonstrate it first to save valuable time. It is designed to encourage flexible thinking styles and student creativity. One small drawback to the site is that the film clips are all quite short; they are designed more to generate discussion than to fully recount the event. Simply showing multiple short clips from an era will help students get a richer experience of the times and perhaps launch a longer lesson.

This site profiles a wide variety of achievers from the arts, science, sports, and business. Each achiever profile features a short biography, a discussion of his or her significance, a photo gallery and an interview. Most of the interviews feature audio and video clips of the achiever as well. The achievers are grouped by area and in an alphabetical drop down list. One great feature is that the achievers are also grouped by character attribute (referred to as their "key to success"): passion, courage, perseverance, integrity, and a neat category called "The American Dream." This site requires Flash and Quicktime. Get them from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): heroes (25), pioneers (8)

In the Classroom

If you assign any kind of "hero," "pioneer," or "leader" biography project, this site is a fabulous resource for students. The list of achievers includes many who may not be instantly recognizable to students and therefore provide more potential for discovery. In addition, the site is large enough and well-enough organized that students can start with this site and "dig" for a possible achiever to research, either by achievement area or by character trait. The site includes a diverse group of achievers, so is also useful if you're doing Women's History or Black History projects. Include this site on your teacher web page for students and parents to access as a reference.
