Created by Arizona teachers for Arizona teachers, these standards-based lesson plans utilize primary sources found on the Arizona Memory Project.
Arizona Memory Fellows Program
The Arizona Memory Fellows Program invites K-12 teachers, teacher-librarians, and library/media specialists from across Arizona to apply to the Fellows Program. Fellows will enjoy a lively professional development experience with outstanding colleagues while utilizing the unique primary resources on the Arizona Memory Project to create exemplary teaching units that can be shared with other educators. Fellows will have the opportunity to shape the way the unique primary source collections are used in schools across Arizona. The Arizona Memory Fellows Program publishes the resulting teaching units on the Arizona Memory Project. Fellows are required to attend a full-day workshop in Phoenix. Fellows receive a stipend and an opportunity to earn professional development credit. Only 8 Fellows positions are available for each cycle. Future cycles are planned for 2008.
