Loving Gilder Lehrman!


Shout it from the rooftops:  

I love Gilder Lehrman!

Christopher Jackson reading Robert Smalls

         History is an important topic to teach and Gilder Lehrman makes it wonderful and authentic.  Do you love Hamilton?   I'm obsessed.  GLI makes it accessible by providing Hamilton Read alouds this summer.  Historical texts read aloud by Hamilton actors.  It's amazing.  You can sign up here!  This picture is from "Hamilton Cast Read Along Session 5 - The Escape of Robert Smalls: A Daring Voyage Out of Slavery", read by Christopher Jackson aka George Washington.  It was amazing.  The read alouds are every Wednesday and Fridays.  There are no replays.  You must sign up in advance and watch it live.  They also offer EduHam where students study primary documents from the Founding Era and create their own performance pieces.

     I've been lucky enough to attend many professional development activities offered by them: AMPU-A More Perfect Union, a joint venture with my district LAUSD, TCTH-Teaching Civics through History and I've attended various week-long Teacher Seminars to deepen my understanding of history to be a better teacher for my students.  I was even nominated for their National History Teacher of the Year award.  Such an honor.  If you are interested in history or want to deepen your knowledge base, check in to GLI.  They are really supporting families and teachers in this time of distance learning.  Serio!!
