an experimental pedagogical narrative on the life of Asaph Perry.
Semantic Constitution - A dynamic web-based version of
the United States Constitution that goes beyond hypertext through
the construction of a digital semantic structure, includes instructional

work was developed with funding from a Robert H. Michel Civic
Education Preliminary Grant from the Dirksen Congressional Center.

resources developed by pre-service and in-service social studies
teachers in Georgia State University programs. This work is
supported by the College of Education at Georgia State University
and the Center for Technology and Teacher Education at the
Curry School of Education.
Historical Inquiry Project - This
project is an effort to create and grow a consortium of schools
and colleges of education interested in promoting historical
inquiry in the preparation of preservice social studies teachers.
The Consortium will produce innovative programs of study that
will allow preservice and inservice social studies teachers
to learn the methods of digital historical inquiry and implement
those methods in their teaching experiences.
