The Tsongas Industrial History Center (TIHC) launched a new web feature whose development was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. It is called “Re-Inventing America,” because it is meant to make components of our NEH-funded “Inventing America” workshop (like videotaped presenter talks and TIHC workshops, photos, and primary documents) digitally accessible to teachers around the country. Six teachers from various states tested the site and sent back comments, and UMass Lowell has made all the recommended changes.  The new web pages went live this month and we will continue to add to the content.
