Mapping History

Announcement from HSP:
The Historical Society of Pennsylvania's PhilaPlace will hold two teacher workshops in May. PhilaPlace is a multiethnic Web-based resource that connects stories to places across time in specific Philadelphia neighborhoods. The Web site will launch in September 2009 and will include photographs, audio and video clips, historical maps and documents, podcast tours, and stories from ordinary people.
Workshops are free, but teachers must register at

Mapping Our History - Wednesday, May 20 from 4:30-6:30 P.M.
Mapping projects allow students to connect with local history as they gather, analyze, and interpret information about their neighborhood. This workshop will suggest approaches for developing local history mapping lessons and discuss ways to incorporate immigration and oral history into such projects.
