Andrew Dickson White

Today Cornell University enrolls over 20,000 students in 14 different colleges and schools, but when its door’s first opened in the fall of 1868 the university had just one building and 412 students. One man would do more to help guide the fledging university through its initial years and set it on course to become one of the greatest institutes of higher education in the county. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMn8awTI_1I

PBS Learning Media is a wealth of digital resources for educators to bring 21st century skills into the classroom. Help students appreciate the critical role trees play in sustaining life on Earth with this interactive from the National Arbor Day Foundation.

Peter Webb

In 1805, John J. Speed brought a young 13-year-old slave named Peter from Virginia to the Town of Caroline, New York near Ithaca. After arriving in New York, Peter continued to serve the Speed family, but he also possessed a growing desire to be free. In 1813, Peter made an arrangement with his master that would allow him to purchase his own freedom. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLUJc9rUbkg
