Podcast #176 - Celebrate Lincoln and Your Students Could Participate in a World Record

Hello. We continue our list of ways to celebrate Lincoln's birthday with an opportunity for you and your students to make history. Join the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in reading the text of the Gettysburg Address at 9:30 AM Central Time on February 12th, 2009. The Museum is attempting to break the current Guinness Book of World Record total of 223,363.

To participate please check out this link and sign up your class. You will need to fill out a form with the names of students participating and signed witnesses. The site also contains numerous resources for teaching Lincoln.

Are you in? I am having my classes join in the activity and encouraging other teachers in my building to take part as well.
