Smithsonian Learning Lab Bright Ideas Newsletter

Dear Learning Lab Registered User,

If you are mentoring student research for National History Day (NHD), this issue of Bright Ideas is for you. But wait! Anyone who takes an interdisciplinary approach to teaching historical themes will find fresh ideas here—as well as digital resources you may not have encountered before.

Read the article to discover new collections for this year’s theme, Breaking Barriers in History, and the distinguished contributors who collaborated to create them. For example, learn how individuals and organizations fought to overcome barriers during the Reconstruction era. Your students will find fruitful research topics through portraits of more than 150 barrier-breakers in such fields as education, science, and the arts. And there’s more!

If you have questions about any of these materials, tune in any Tuesday from 4 to 5 pm Eastern, for live “office hours“ with our staff. We’re always happy to help and glad to meet you!

Sincerely,

Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access
