Here are some links to various sites that students may find interesting in their pursuit of history. Some will be directly used in the course of this year's instruction, others are simply worth noting for the background they provide. Lastly, some are simply personally interesting and provide a little bit more insight into me as a teacher. I'll be adding more as the year goes on, so visit often!Classzone - The online resource center for users of the Americans text book (US II ENR)http://www.classzone.com/cz/find_state.htmHistory Channel - http://www.history.com/ - not what it once was but there's still some gems in there.HistoryNet - http://www.historynet.com/ - Weider Historical publishers group site - some good articles here.The Crusades Interactive Map - http://www.phschool.com/atschool/worldhistory/interactive_maps/WH07A00563.swfEllis Island website - http://www.ellisisland.org/New York Times interactive immigration map - this map can tell you so many things! - http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2009/03/10/us/20090310-immigration-explorer.html?_r=0PBS - Destination America - immigration site - http://www.pbs.org/destinationamerica/usim_wn_flash.htmlUnited States Holocaust Memorial Museum - http://www.ushmm.org/Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust - http://www.mjhnyc.org/findex.html#.Ui0lBcbNVQEAmerican Museum of Natural History - founded by TR himself! - http://www.amnh.org/My alma maters:University of Delaware - http://www.udel.edu/Seton Hall University - http://www.shu.edu/The following links are freelance articles I wrote a few years ago for Battlefront, Inc, a New Zealand based World War II miniature gaming company.Kamenets-Podolsky Pocket (Hube's Pocket) on the Soviet German front during WWII - http://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=1088 - I'm most proud of this article.
