In case you deleted the e-mail with what we have left to do


2. each group to submit to me a hard copy of its policy statement and supporting materials (form may vary here, but this portfolio should equate roughly with a 10-page paper in terms of effort and content) by Monday, December 14. You may include with your portfolio a rubric for evaluating the contributions of your peers;

3. each individual to submit to me a five-page written review (hard

copy) of the process of doing this project. Explain what you liked/disliked about the project; what was particularly challenging; how you would approach it if you could start over; and, perhaps most importantly, how our classroom exploration of public history themes and issues helped you makes sense of an actual public history project.

Submit no later than Monday, December 14.

4. each individual to submit to me, by email or hard copy, an assessment of the contributions of your team members to the final project. In other words, I want you to evaluate your partners. This will help me figure the individual grades that I assign for the final project. Have this to me also by December 14.

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share this with everyone, http://www.philaplace.org/ I actually did some work with HSP this past summer as my internship. I haven't had the chance to play around with the site but I think it's a great resource to have for Philadelphia.

I thought this post might be of interest in light of our discussion about digital media.  An additional way that digital technology affects public historians, or at least places where we work, is the ability for consumers to comment in a public forum.  A friend of mine had a negative experience at one museum and a positive one at another.  She shared her experience directly with museum staff while there.  She also blogged about it.  Her thoughts can be found here.  I also found interesting her reaction to rules museums set.

Here's a great starting point for discussions about making collections available online:
