Blog of the Day: Educating Alice
About the Blogger: Monica is a teacher; she's written books and articles on a number of subjects, including teaching history to children. And she's a fan of Alice in Wonderland.
About the Blog: Monica writes about children, children's literature, teaching children, teaching children using literature, and other sundry topics that come to her attention.

Monica also talks about balance between being sensitive to students, yet challenging; and has written some great stuff about history, historical fiction and her concern with how fiction is used to teach history, and using primary sources to teach elementary students.
