Congratulations. The Federal Resources for Educational Excellence (FREE)Web site began featuring the Teaching with Historic Places (TwHP) lesson plan A Nation Repays Its Debt: The National Soldiers' Home and Cemetery in Dayton, Ohio, on its homepage last Friday, September 3. Administered by the U.S. Department of Education, this Web site acts as a clearinghouse for Federal educational materials and makes online teaching and learning resources from more than 30 Federal agencies easier to find. The site's daily "Today's FREE Resource" provides a description, an "Interesting fact," and links to the featured site. Overall, at least 33 TwHP lesson plans have been posted on the FREE homepage. Individual "daily" features
generally stay up on the FREE homepage anywhere from a day to a week, so check it out quickly while it's still up there. All TwHP lesson plans are included in the FREE index, which is organized by subject matter. You'll find the FREE Web site at

A Nation Repays Its Debt was sponsored by the History Program staff of the National Cemetery Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, and was written by Paul LaRue, a history teacher at Washington Senior High School in Washington Court House, Ohio, with help from his 2003-2004 history class students. In this lesson on Dayton National Soldiers' Home and Cemetery, students learn about the evolution of a system to honor and care for U.S. veterans beginning with the creation of soldiers' homes and national cemeteries during and after the Civil War. You can find the lesson

TwHP is a program administered by the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places. It uses information about places listed in the National Register to enrich instruction of history, social studies, geography, civics, and other subjects. The cornerstone of the program is a series of online lesson plans on historic places throughout the country; currently 116 lessons are posted online and are indexed by state, historic theme, time period, and the national history standards. Soon the lessons also will be linked to the social studies curriculum standards developed by
the National Council for the Social Studies. To learn more, visit the TwHP Web site at
