A variety of school programs is available through
Living History Associates, Ltd., spanning three
centuries of American history. The purpose of
these programs is to offer students educational
and entertaining interpretive presentations
drawn from primary sources. These sources include
diaries, letters, and eyewitness accounts of
historical events. Our presentations utilize
first- and third- person interpretation, discussion,
narrative, and the inquiry method. Whenever
applicable, regional or site specific information
will be included in the interpretive program.
The intent is to reinforce the historical significance
of the area where the students live.
Our outlines and lesson plans are prepared
using the new 1995 revised Virginia social studies
Standards of Learning Objectives (S.O.L.'s)
for the different grade levels. If you have
certain areas which you wish the living history
character to reinforce, we invite you to ask.
Guides for field trips and/or presentations
at nearby historical sites also can be arranged.
These time-tested programs have been designed
to provide you with another curriculum resource.
We believe you will find them helpful.
