About This Project

Hampton – A Revolutionary Place was created by Michael Curry, Molly Delen, Kenneth Raykovics, and Coralea Tarlton, all teachers in Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS). The instructional materials and field trip were designed for use with intermediate elementary students.

This project was made possible by the Making American History Master Teachers in Baltimore County Program, funded with a grant to Baltimore County Public Schools from the United States Department of Education. The materials were developed in conjunction with graduate course work in elementary history education, given by the Department of History and Center for History Education at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). Resource support was provided by Hampton National Historic Site, National Park Service; the Maryland State Archives; and the Maryland Historical Society.

The UMBC New Media Studio, UMBC Martha Ross Center for Oral History, and The Education Channel, Baltimore County Public Schools, assisted in the production of the digital media.

All materials contained herein are intended for education use only, following fair-use guidelines.
