AMHERST, Mass. - When area schoolteachers and the Memorial Hall Museum, Deerfield, combined forces to create a Web site that helps kids to learn history, they turned to the UMass for help in getting a sophisticated site online. The Web site, “American Centuries: View from New England,” focuses on the region at three turns of the century. The project relies on items from the museum’s collection to provide students with a window on the past. Students can learn about family life, child life, gender roles, work, and education in the years 1700, 1800, and 1900. The site goes hand-in-hand with extensive history curricula designed by Frontier Regional School District teachers, and provides an interactive look at much of the collection of the museum, part of the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association (PVMA).
