very thorough lessons and resources for professional development.   I think one of the very cool parts about this is that it has a parent and afterschool resource section that makes it easier for parents to stay involved and learn with their children.

These are mostly lessons for an art class but many are realted to history and would be a great way to add something different to your classroom while staying on topic with history or english lessons.  Very well done as far as how easy it is to find something useful for your class.
