    Webinar Recording: Virtual Museum Field Trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame


      After last night's webinar, I am officially and completely jealous of Julie Wilson! Julie is the  manager of school programming at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY, and was our guest presenter for last nights Virtual Museum Field Trip. In this webinar, she presented many interesting and exciting facts and pictures about and from the Hall of Fame, and she showed the amazing set of Common Core-aligned resources for teachers, such as how to explore complex Civil Rights issues via the lens of baseball's integration. Click the recording link below to watch, and take care to note how to access the resources and ways the Hall of Fame can connect with your school.
