Gearing Up For Black History Month

To the left some of the nifty "flow chart/looking at data" type resources available in social studies from Mike Bloomberg Department Of Education in NYC. More of the same from this main link
Below a slide show I put together from great cartoons archived from a Virginia based newspaper called the Daily Press

In order to take advantage of the Google Video Player I had to modify the size and boost the resolution of the individual frames of the comic strip. I did the best that I could. I used an application called Genuine Fractals/PrintPro. For audio I found a great resource from Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities called Massachusetts Moments. I captured an audio that went with the strip on the Boston Massacre and Crispus Attucks. I've decide to move my considerable black history multimedia to a dedicated blog called Every Month Is Black History Month Check it out
