1. Common Core State Standards for History/Social Studies, Sciences, and Technical Subjects Do Not Replace Oregon Social Sciences Standards

As Oregon schools and districts have worked to familiarize themselves with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) over the past year, they have come to understand the important role that the Literacy Standards for History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects play in preparing students to be college and career ready.

In the CCSS, literacy is a shared responsibility within the school. Teachers in all subject areas use their content area expertise to help students meet the particular challenges of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language in their respective fields. It is important to note that the CCSS literacy standards are not meant to replace content standards in those areas. When it comes to instruction, the content of Oregon’s adopted Social Science and Science standards should be the focus of “what” is taught. During the course of this instruction, the literacy standards would be addressed by having students engage in reading, writing, and speaking activities specific to the particular content area that allow them to demonstrate the skills described in the CCSS.

The Historical Outreach Foundation has three presentations that can be scheduled at your school: Lewis and Clark, Oregon's Role in WWII and Oregon in the Civil War. All three presentations bring a trunk of touchable replica or actual items from those eras of American and Oregon history.

The Lewis and Clark and Oregon's Role in WWII have interactive PowerPoint presentations using the items from the trunk to tell those stories and asking questions from the students. These two presentations also include a map for every student to reinforce the information given in the presentation.

The “Oregon in the Civil War” partners with the NW Civil War Council to bring a living history presenter to the classroom to talk about what significance Oregon had during the Civil War and what the typical Civil War Soldier did during the war. What did he eat? What did he wear? What did he shoot? What were the tactics? These presentations are available to travel anywhere in Oregon and Washington.

The Historical Outreach Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit so only asks for donations for these presentations and is actively looking for a sponsor so that all schools can have these presentations for free. For more information and to schedule a presentation go to www.historicaloutreach.com or email historicoutreach@aol.com or call 503-705-5965.
6. Oregon’s 41st Infantry Division during WWII

A new documentary about Oregon's (and Washington, Idaho and Montana) National Guard unit the 41st Infantry Division called "Jungleers in Battle, the 41st Infantry Division of WWII" is now available at www.historicaloutreach.com. The Jungleers were considered to be the best American Infantry Division in the United States prior to WWII due them winning a competition. Because of that they were activated on September 16, 1940 over a year before the attack at Pearl Harbor. They trained at Fort Lewis and at Hunter Liggett in California. Their first wartime duty was coastline defense along the Oregon and Washington coastline after the attack at Pearl Harbor. They were then loaded on ships and sent to Australia the first American Infantry Division to arrive on Australian soil where the Japanese were already attacking at Darwin. They fought through New Guinea, The Philippines and onto occupation duty in the Hiroshima district of Japan. This documentary tells the story of why the Japanese attacked the United States. It tells the veterans’ reactions to the dropping of the atomic bomb and their interactions with the Japanese during occupation duty. Twenty one veterans from all parts of Oregon and Washington are interviewed in this documentary telling their stories.

9. “From Your Valentine” Exhibit At Burrows House Museum in Newport

“From Your Valentine,” cards, photos, and objects of affection from the collection of the Lincoln County Historical Society, is on display now through February at the Burrows House Museum, 545 SW Ninth St. in Newport. Admission is free; donations are appreciated.

“Exceptionally beautiful cards, as well as some humorous ones, decorative boxes, and photos of couples from the early years in Lincoln County make this a charming and nostalgic display,” Steve Wyatt, executive director of the Historical Society, noted.

One of the photos features Mac Hofer and Sabine Dent, who met in Newport in 1903 when both families vacationed at Yaquina Bay. The story of their summers here is told by Mac’s sister, Florence Hofer Bynon, in a small publication of the Historical Society, “When Time Seemed to Pause.” “My brother married the lovely Sabine after a five-year courtship,” Bynon wrote.

The cards and objects feature the symbols associated with Valentine’s Day including hearts, Cupid, flowers, and birds. The earliest card is from 1908. Americans and Britons probably began exchanging hand-made valentines in the early 1700s. In the 1840s Esther A. Howland began to sell the first mass-produced valentines in America, hiring women to work in her home writing verses and assembling the decorative layers. “Penny dreadfuls,” comic and insulting cards, circulated in the mid-1800s and early 1900s. One verse reads:
Tis all in vain your simpering looks,

You never can incline,

With all your bustles, stays, and curls,

To find a valentine


The display also offers historical information about the history of St. Valentine’s Day. The celebration has roots in the Roman Lupercalia, a pagan festival held on Feb. 15. Over the years the celebration was transformed into a Christianized version honoring an early Saint, though history is not conclusive about the person eventually known as St. Valentine. A poem from Charles, Duke of Orleans, written to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London in 1415, is the oldest known valentine still in existence, preserved in the British Library in London. Several years later King Henry V reportedly hired a writer named John Lydgate to compose a Valentine note to Catherine of Valois. Gradually, Valentine’s Day evolved into a purely romantic cultural celebration.

About one billion valentine cards are purchased each year, 85 percent of them by women, according to the Greeting Card Association.

The Lincoln County Historical Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the history of Lincoln County. It operates the Burrows House and Log Cabin museums located at 545 SW Ninth Street in Newport. The museums are free and open to the public. The Burrows House Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; the Log Cabin Museum is open Thursday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

11. “Snapshots of Historical Archaeology in Oregon at MNCH, Eugene

A new exhibit at the Museum of Natural and Cultural History (NMCH), 1680 E.15th Ave., Eugene, explores five sites recently excavated by museum archaeologists. “Site Seeing: Snapshots of Historical Archaeology in Oregon” examines each site to reveal a deeper understanding of the people who lived before us and enhances understanding of Oregon's collective heritage.

15. World War II Museum’s 2013 Student Essay Contest

In order to fight — and ultimately win — WWII, the United States allied itself with countries it had political, economic and strategic disagreements with — both small and large. On the Home Front disagreements existed between politicians of different parties, between workers and factory owners, and between racial groups. Most times (but not always) people were able to put aside these differences for the greater good. Differences of opinion still exist today in the United States — in both the country as a whole, in cities, schools and within families. This year students are asked to examine these differences along with our common goals to answer the question, "How can people who disagree still work together for victory?"

High school students have the chance to win as much as $1,000. Middle school students can win $250. Winning essays will be posted on the Museum’s website.

Get more information, rules and contest deadlines.
