Throughout the week, summer scholars will be engaged, collaboratively, in the development of a practical classroom resource based on their experiences at the workshop. Dr. Lorrei DiCamillo, a master social studies teacher, and Associate Professor of Education at Canisius College will provide guidance and feedback to summer scholars during the workshop.
Because 46 of the 50 states in the Union have adopted the Common Core Standards, participants are strongly encouraged to develop classroom resources based on the analysis of primary sources. Summer Scholars will have a wealth of sources to choose from throughout their week-long study of the Canal.
Projects will be presented on Saturday morning and archived on the workshop website. Projects may be selected by EDSITEment, a project of the National Endowment for the Humanities, for feature on their web portal.
