PBS Teachers Webinar: Teaching about Place with Ken Burns's "The National Parks: America's Best Idea" PBS producers and curriculum experts

Curriculum Connections: Social Studies & Science

PBS Teachers and Classroom 2.0 are delighted to have education technology experts join us to present ideas for teaching with Ken Burns’s newest series, "The National Parks: America’s Best Idea." The film traces the birth of the national park idea in the mid-1800s and follows its evolution for nearly 150 years. Using archival photographs, first-person accounts of historical characters, personal memories and analysis from more than 40 interviews, and stunning cinematography, the series chronicles the steady addition of new parks through the stories of the people who helped create them and save them from destruction.

Resources from ABC-CLIO "History & The Headlines" will also be included in the presentation from curriculum experts.

So... is it on YOUR calendar yet?
