Who can see your viewing activity?
The wider scope Maureen discusses allows teachers/educators to utilize materials "across the curriculum."
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?
Will the book be available in the U.S?
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?
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
There is an Irish Famine Memorial in Philadelphia.
Is the group familiar with the music album in 2017 Chronicles of the Irish Famine by Declan O”Rourke?
Do you there will be a time when the Irish Government refers to this time as the Great Hunger?
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.
I would agree Christeen
Christine that is!
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?
Is there a link for the film. I missed it.
A link to both films: http://greatfaminevoices.ie/famine-heroes/
One of the places I want to visit...
Bravo to that teacher!!

Terrific discussion. Thanks to all. I'm sorry that I have to leave early.
What’s that online resource Caitrona mentioned?
Thank you, Jason, for url
A great day with interesting insights.
Thank you, everyone. Very helpful survey of issues...
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.
Thank you, all. This was excellent.
