FREE Colonial Williamsburg Electronic Field Trip ~ "The Will of the People"

For History next year, Dawson will be studying Current Events first semester and then U.S. Government second semester.

The presidential election is a PERFECT time to study these two events.

This year we have done an exhaustive study on American History from the inception of our country to the 1930's.

And now The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation has opened up an opportunity to tie the two together!!

For the entire month of September, with an easy registration, you can receive COMPLIMENTARY access to the Electronic Field Trip entitled "The Will of the People".

 The Electronic Field Trip, “The Will of the People,” examines the presidential election of 1800, one of the most bitter in U.S. history, and provides a surprising lesson for a 21st-century student. Thomas Jefferson explains how negative campaigning, partisan politics, and contested elections have been a part of our political system since the earliest days of the republic.
  • Available online 24/7 from September 1 to September 30, 2012
  • On-demand video streaming over the Web
  • Email Thomas Jefferson
  • Interactive online games
  • Downloadable resources, such as the teacher guide and program script (PDF)
  • Comprehensive lesson plans
You can go here to register. I plan to utilize this site in our studies of the election to tie the history of our American elections to the current election.
