you heard of the Ohio Resource Center?
The Ohio Resource Center for Mathematics, Science, and Reading (ORC)
identifies, compiles, and shares effective instructional and professional
development resources for educators. This includes links to peer-reviewed
instructional resources that exemplify best or promising practice. It
also includes curricular content, professional development resources,
assessment, and general education resources to support the work of PreK12
classroom teachers and higher education faculty members. The resources
are correlated with Ohio's academic content standards and with applicable
national content standards.
With the help of a grant from Honda of America, support from Ohioanas Virginia Hamilton & Arnold Adoff Endowment, and the generosity of several publishers, the Ohioana Library has been able to begin to share some of the outstanding literature written by Ohioans with Ohio school children. It is our belief that children will enjoy learning and will be inspired by writers and illustrators that share a similar background with them; writers and artists who also have made their homes in Ohio.
The Ohioana Library Travels the Underground Railroad project contains tools designed to provide resources for students, teachers, and librarians to augment and enhance the standard classroom curriculum.
The goal of this educational kit is to reach out to students and teachers throughout the state of Ohio. Educators will be able to use this kit to teach about the Underground Railroad and its significance in Ohio. Resources, information, documents, classroom book sets, videos, lesson plans, and other materials have been included to enable teachers to select appropriate materials and ideas in order to reach children of all learning styles in all disciplines of study, including math, geography, social studies, language arts, art, and music.
