I recently spent a week at James Madison's Montpelier estate in Virginia. The seminar on The War of 1812 was attended by other teachers from the Virginia and Maryland area. We had the pleasure of learning more about the more about the War of 1812 from three authors, Don Hickey, David Edmunds and Elizabeth Taylor. I learned quite a bit that week and will be able to implement even more incredible research for teachers to conduct with their students as part of the Star Spangled Banner Trail. At the end of the week myself and Ruth Goodlaxson were able to share with the group what we have already started compiling for the trail. An amazing week an amazing place to visit!
This page is dedicated to the work and research my students do each day.
