LCHA Education Program

a new initiative to serve students in our local schools

LCHA MUSEUMS

Welcome to the LCHA Education Outreach Program pages:

For the 2018 – 2019 school year, the Opening Windows on the Heritage of Lincoln County booklet has been prepared detailing all of the offerings presently available, and an invitation to contact me with special requests. I am happy to discuss with you how our program can contribute to your curriculum. Our partnerships with Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site, and the FARMS (Focus on Agriculture in Rural Maine Schools) program, have been enthusiastically embraced by teachers.
Our approach to sharing history is interdisciplinary – history is not just a series of dates and
events but a record of daily life. New this year are three PowerPoint presentations (please see pages 4&5 in the catalog.

Our goal through the LCHA Education Outreach Program, now in its fifth year, is to enhance
your curriculum, bringing an insight to the rich local history of Lincoln County to students. I would
like to highlight a few points:

  • The Lesson Resources are complete and do not require additional research or preparation,
    outside of copying sheets, for use in the classroom.

  • A staff member is available to present and assists a class with one or more of the Lesson
    Resources.

  • In-School Presentations are not limited to those listed in Opening Windows on the Heritage
    of Lincoln County – contact me with your specific interests (please see pages 16 -19 in the booklet).

Thank you for considering the Education Outreach Program of the Lincoln County Historical
Association for your students. Please feel free to write or call with any questions.

Sincerely,

Louise T. Miller,
Education Director
