Daniel Boone and American Ginseng: Truth and Legend

Who was Daniel Boone? Was he more than a stereotypical American frontier hero? Explore Daniel Boone and his relationship to the native plant, ginseng, through this collection and series of activities. 

Daniel Boone (1734-1820) spent much of his adult life blazing trails through the American wilderness. Through exploration and opening the wilderness, Boone and others were able to exploit its many rich resources, including the profitable plant American ginseng. He rose to the status of American legend, becoming known as someone who braved hardship and danger to bring the earth's resources to the market. The legend of Daniel Boone and his-lost-ginseng illustrates the way such stories can reflect historical fact. But become exaggerated or distorted through many generations of story tellers, and, now, via the internet. History and fiction become intertwined. 

While the days of American pioneers are long gone, people still search for and gather wild ginseng in the mountainous regions that Boone frequented. Learn more about Boone's adventures and American ginseng throughout this collection. Be sure to click the Information icon to learn more about each item. 

To learn more about Daniel Boone and his efforts to explore the wilderness, visit the Learning Lab collection -The Wilderness Road- .

(re)Telling Our Stories--We Are Seeds!

On a good day, my students feel as though our country is trying to bury them. On a bad day, they feel as though their stories are being told for them--ugly stories where they and their families become murderers, rapists and drug dealers. 

The mission of the National Portrait Gallery is to tell the story of America by portraying the people who shape the nation’s history, development and culture. In a sense, NPG decides who is America, and if my students walked through the gallery, they would be told quite clearly that they are not a part of this country.

This collection and connected lesson ideas are grounded in a quote from one of Kehinde Wiley's models in Economy of Grace, a documentary filled with incredibly powerful women who don't get a single mention in the IMBD credits.

"You don't have to be a super model or someone important to be seen."

I strive to help my students be seen and tell their stories.

This collection was created in conjunction with the National Portrait Gallery's 2019 Learning to Look Summer Teacher Institute. #kehindewiley #npgteach #theytriedtoburyus

NATURE: A Visit to the Museum

Talk with Me!

Having conversations with young children contributes to their thinking and language development. All conversations are good, but research shows that the quality of words children hear matters more than the quantity. Further, what’s best is an exchange; in other words, talk with children, not at them.

The Talk with Me Toolkits give parents and caregivers thematically organized high-quality, authentic materials to make children their conversational partners in discussions that matter. Each online toolkit features captivating videos and real-world photographs, as well as intriguing paintings and other artworks to observe and discuss through conversation prompts.  Hands-on activities and books complete each toolkit. Simple instructions appear right in the toolkits, so you can jump right in. See what interests your child and get started. There’s a lot to talk about!

Streaming's Impact on Artist Revenues

As streaming has become the most popular mode for listening, artists have had to adjust to smaller earnings despite growing audiences.  This collection looks at the shift from physical and "purchased" downloads to streaming subscriptions. The collection evaluates how artists are compensated compared to other listening platforms. It also looks at how spotify has changed the way we find and listen to music. Streaming has helped listeners find their niche, and prevented radio and media from swaying listening habits. No Longer are people tied to one genre.
