One of the many nice things that comes with this blog is that I get people writing me with ideas for blog entries (which is the purpose of this site!) and the site mentioned below by the National Endowment of the Humanities is one of them. They also are looking for people to write a lesson plan on the NAACP and its impact on American politics, society and culture over the past century of its existence. If you are a K-12 teacher and interested in writing for EDSITEment or if you have an appropriate lesson, please contact Joe Phelan at JPhelan@neh.gov.
