“I view [education] as the most important subject which we as people can be engaged in.”
-- Abraham Lincoln
Is Lincoln still relevant?
How does his legacy impact the United States today?
How can teachers best bring to life the lessons Abraham Lincoln can teach a modern classroom?
The Bicentennial of America’s greatest president is a “teachable moment.” The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission is committed to providing teachers with lesson plans, other classroom resources, information about upcoming professional development opportunities, and reading lists, and ideas for civic education and community projects to get their students involved in the Bicentennial.
Lifelong learners will want to check out the many opportunities to visit the historic sites associated with Lincoln as well as the dozen Exploritas programs and Catholic University courses with Lincoln themes.
Another destination is the Library of Congress Learning Page.
President Lincoln never stops teaching us!
