Recommendations for Integration:

This RWLO may be used in a variety of liberal arts courses in which writing and research skills are objectives. In addition the RWLO may be adapted for use by instructors at any college in the country by substituting the focus on Cleveland to an appropriate area. Please refer to the Supplementary Resources for primary resource websites in a variety of locals in the United States.


This RWLO relies upon the use of the primary resource websites, such as the Cleveland Memory Project. If for any reason a primary resource website ceases to exist, another site would have to be chosen for inclusion and thus the procedures and content materials updated. Additionally, an instructor may create a bank of images for a student to use for the project. An image bank may be stored online.
