Elaine Evans / Wednesday, August 5, 2020 / Categories: General News Teaching History Resources As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our lives, many teachers, parents, and students across the state are faced with and coping with new learning options and techniques. Some schools are using distance learning exclusively while others are using a mixed blend of online and in-person classroom settings. Other parents are opting for homeschooling their children. Whatever option you choose for the education of your children, the ISHS would like to share just a few of the many teaching history resources that are available on the Internet. If you as a teacher or parent, have other resources that you would like to share, please send your suggestions to OfficeManager@HistoryIllinois.org and we will add them to the list.
