RCS Instructional Technology Trainings 
TN History
For November, we are digging into the American Revolution for a second time: In this month’s newsletter, you will find lesson ideas on Patriots in Petticoats: Revolutionary Women; Inspiring the Revolution; The Battle of Bunker Hill; and The Tarring of John Malcom: a British Perspective. Be sure to check out the important links and featured primary sources on page four as well. If you would like to learn more about the sources that we found this month and our ideas about how they might be used in the classroom, please join us on Thursday, November 9th at 4 p.m. for this month’s Digging In webinar. To register, simply email me at [email protected].
There is no cost for these history workshops. Email your certificates or good screen shots to [email protected]

Due to our lack of space, the Teacher Center has restructured. If you are a private member, organization, or teacher needing access to the center, our die cut collection has moved to Rockvale Elementary School. They may be contacted to make an appointment to use them if needed. Please bring your own materials as the construction paper and bulletin board paper is not available. At this time, we still have the laminator and printer. Calling ahead ensures it is warm and someone is available to help you. 615-893-5815 ext. 22073
