New links

A couple of links have been added to the blogroll on the right sidebar.  They are “Encyclopedia Virginia” and “Virginia Memory.”  They each contain a wealth of information and would be very helpful in VA Studies.  They include photographs and lots of primary resources, a today in history, and many other features.  They are reliable sources in partnership with the Library of Virginia and the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities.

Test Blueprints

Just wanted to remind everyone that the link for the SOL test blueprints (from the VDOE) is under the blogroll in the right sidebar.  When reviewing/remediating, it’s a good idea to check out the blueprint and see what information is weighed most heavily in the test.

Life Photo Archive

Life and Google have partnered to archive all of Life Magazine’s photos. 

“Search millions of photographs from the LIFE photo archive, stretching from the 1750s to today. Most were never published and are now available for the first time through the joint work of LIFE and Google.”

Photos are organized by decade, people, places, events, sports, and culture.  This is a great resource for teachers and students.
