Camp Education Packet

Dear Educator,

In this day of high tech toys and easy travel, one would think that it would be an easy matter to educate our youth. But we, as educators, know this is far from the truth. So great a problem has been caused by the advent of new ideas and technologies that the simple practice of teaching our students has become a task for giants to undertake.

You may ask why any organization would undertake this task. We, the North Carolina Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, feel it is important that you have the needed tools. The NC SCV Education Committee has prepared teaching materials for use by our teachers and the following are enclosed.

• Handouts for your students inviting them to participate in a statewide essay contest.
• A list of possible lesson plans (which follow the state guidelines) to help you during your presentation of the history of 1861-65.

In addition, our website, www.ncscv.net, contains an Educational services site that currently has eight-course guides similar to the one enclosed. Additional lesson plans will be added in the future. Please feel free to contact me for information about our local mentor’s program and about reenactors who will be happy to visit your school and present “first-person” history lessons to your students.

Thank you for your time and your energy as a teacher. If you have questions or need additional information, please contact me.

 

Until then, I remain Remembering and Forever Vigilant,

 

Edward Lee Harris, Jr.
Education Committee Chairman
