For the month of August, I've been given the privilege to host a History Carnival...
For those that are unfamiliar with The History Carnival - here's an overview.
History Carnival is a monthly showcase of blog writing about history, usually held on the 1st day of the month. It's hosted at a different blog each month to provide a variety of approaches and perspectives.
I might suggest browsing some of the archived carnivals to see what it's all about...
This month, I am hosting.... for those that would like to be considered for the month of August, please send me some information about the posting and follow the directions below...
As a note - I'd like all posts to have some kind of information (lesson plans, ideas, resources) that can be used for teachers or classrooms. In other words, I'd prefer not to have a lot of information, but decide how this information can be translated for students (preferably middle and high school students).
How to submit nominationsAll nominated posts should have been published since the most recent Carnival edition (or at most a few days before that).
1. You can send an email to USHistorySite@gmail.com. Include the title and full URL of the post you are nominating, and the name of the blog. Please also put 'History Carnival' somewhere in the title of the email.
2. Or you can send an email using the simple nomination form at this site.
I'll choose my favorites... hopefully a good number of them, and post them August 1, 2010.
