The Online Classroom is designed to help educators use photographs, documents, sound recordings and film footage from the State Library and Archives of Florida.
The Online Classroom also showcases collaborative projects between the State Library and Archives of Florida and Florida schools. These projects help students make a personal connection to the primary source documents that tell the stories of their communities.
Photographs and documents from the State Library and Archives of Florida are placed together with background information.
Digital storytelling is a way to tell a story using images, video, audio and music.
This is a list of resources available online from the State Library and Archives of Florida relating to topics in Florida history. Additional resources are available at the State Library and Archives of Florida in Tallahassee.
Using primary source documents gives students the power to analyze history as historians do. These primary source sets contain documents and photos arranged by topic that teachers can use in their lesson plans. Each set is accompanied by a teacher's guide containing historical context, teaching suggestions, and relevant NGSSS and Florida Standards.
This project documents change in Florida cities, towns, communities and landscapes from a student perspective. Art teacher Polly Werner, in collaboration with the State Archives of Florida, conducted the pilot project with her third grade class at Dr. N. H. Jones Elementary School in Ocala, Florida.
