Visit the new online lesson plan from Teaching with Historic Places , "Two American Entrepreneurs: Madame C.J. Walker and J.C.Penny." This lesson plan, completing a series placed on the web for Women's History Month, relates the history of Madame C.J. Walker, creator of a popular line of African American hair care products and cosmetics, and the history of James Cash Penny's business venture, the Golden Rule Store, a dry goods business that grew into the J.C.Penny Company. Visit the Teaching with Historic Places web site at www.cr.nps.gov/nr/twhp to learn more about these lesson plans as well as how the program can help educators and preservationists work together to incorporate historic places into the curriculum.

A second Teaching with Historic Places lesson plan, "Life on an Island: Early Settlers Off the Rock-Bound Coast of Maine," explores the history and occupations of the seafaring Hadlock family and the farming Gilleys of Baker Island. The lives and occupations associated with northern coastal life, as well as the lives of everyday people in the 19th century, are explored through this new on-line lesson plan.
