The wider scope Maureen discusses allows teachers/educators to utilize materials "across the curriculum."
Donagh

Have you considered the use of actors/historic reconstruction within the lessons

Today Paula Stokes, glass sculptor has launched 1845: Memento Mori, an installation in the gardens of Strokestown House just beside the National famine museum in Co Roscommon

Are the digitized records on Irish women you mention immigrants available yet?
Jan Carr

Will the book be available in the U.S?
Amy Day

Question for Maureen: my understanding is that Asenath Nicholson never came to Strokestown during the famine. Is that accurate, or is there evidence for the possibility that she in fact spent time there?
Donagh

Thank you Lynn

I love the reconstructed cottage in the NYC Hunger Memorial. It helps me visualize so concretely what a cottage was like.

When you speak of addressing famine in India as part of the New York curriculum are you addressing just current/recent famines or do you include the string of historic fmainesnunder th ebritish

Is the group familiar with the music album in 2017 Chronicles of the Irish Famine by Declan O”Rourke?

A really interesting Reddit conversation just happened about this in the Ireland forum. It's a fascinating interaction that I'd highly recommend checking out.

Many U.S. states have very localized, even district-level, curricula (not state-level as NY and NJ seem to have). One hurtle is recommending where resources may fit into existing curricula. Is there a "clearing house" that educators might access to view the body of exisiting, vetted materials?
Pauline Lomax
08:00:38
Is there a link for the film. I missed it.
Jason King

Given the need for access to primary sources, is there any plan to put on line the 4 volume collection of famine documents edited by Christine, Gerry Moran and Jason? It certainly would be useful at all educational levels.
