Picturing America is a unique set of resources for schools. It is a set of laminated prints with teacher resources. Looking at this site, I can see where librarians, fine arts, social studies, and English teachers would especially be interested in using this resource with your students. I am also linking another blog of a teacher who just received her kit. Pretty neat stuff. The application to get a kit is October 15. Let me know if you decide to apply. What a great resource!
