Windows on History

The Spanish American War

  Windows on History is a community service-learning program in which K-12 teachers and their students partner with local museums and historical societies to create web sites that present local history to the public.

  HEC sponsors the Emerging America: Teaching American History project.

  This project was completed by students and teachers at the Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Charter School with the help of local resources from the Greenfield Public Library, Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association, Historic Northampton, Amherst College Archives  and Forbes Library in Northampton all located in western Massachusetts.
