  1. The three BH sessions all look great! Open Educational Resources, Working with the Present and Future, and Writing in History are all very important sessions for teachers and students today. I hope you get a great response and engaging exchange. Should you get visitors from Michigan or west Michigan, let them know that the Michigan Council for Social Studies holds in state conference March 22-23 at Hope College, Holland, MI. I and others intend to propose a BH session. Share the cool University of Michigan video:
