New North Dakota Studies Website Launches for Educators

BISMARCK — The North Dakota Studies program of the State Historical Society of North Dakota recently launched a new website at ndstudies.gov. The new website provides North Dakota Studies information about publications and teaching resources for grades 4, 8, and high school, and directs users to supplemental resources. The website not only provides publications and teaching resources for North Dakota Studies, but also a host of additional materials related to the study of North Dakota.

“Whether you desire to know more about the Civil War era in North Dakota, seek information about the USS North Dakota, or simply want to become familiar with North Dakota’s state symbols, this new site provides a destination for students, teachers, and lifelong learners wanting to explore the interesting geography, history, and culture of our state,” said Neil Howe, North Dakota Studies coordinator with the State Historical Society of North Dakota.

Dozens of primary source documents from State Archives at the State Historical Society of North Dakota are now available at the new website to complement the high school textbook, North Dakota: Readings about the Northern Plains State. In fall 2014, the website will also feature the new Grade 8 North Dakota Studies curriculum, North Dakota: People Living on the Land.

For more information about the North Dakota Studies program, contact Neil Howe, coordinator, at nhowe@nd.gov or 701.205.7802.
