  12. 12. Follow Black History on the Underground Railroad You can’t move in this area without tripping over something historic. And yet—too often—our kids only get to see the history of the rich, the vaunted and the already-remembered. How can you show your family that historical sites aren’t always cordoned off with velvet ropes and accompanied by costume interpreters? Taking a driving tour following portions of the Underground Railroad through the Eastern Shore of Maryland is a good way to experience history in a new way—and many sites relate to the most famous “conductor,” Harriet Tubman. As part of its history, Maryland claims both a large section of the Underground Railroad and arguably its most famous “conductor,” Harriet Tubman. Maryland Byways lays out an Eastern Shore driving tour that takes you through landscapes that are nearly unchanged to a history that is on the edge of disappearing. Start at the Visitors Center at Sailwinds Park, right off Rt. 50. Besides an impressive playground, stop to use the bathroom and get the “Finding a Way to Freedom” driving tour map, which serves as a good supplement to the book’s map, which is somewhat lacking in detail. In Cambridge, you can see the Dorchester County Courthouse that, in addition to being the site of slave auctions, was also where the trial of Samuel Green, who was sentenced to ten years in prison school Bucktown General Store Jefferson Communications, LLC Proprietary Content 929 West Street, Suite 210, Annapolis, MD 21401 I ph. 410-263-1641 fax. 410-280-0255 I ChesapeakeFamily.com
  13. 13. Harriet Tubman Byway – Community/Education Site Search Log in Worksheet Page Example Living in Maryland, we often take history for granted – as if every town is surrounded by fields and houses where slaves hid on their way to freedom. Thankfully, there are plenty of good resources to remind us of where we’ve been and of stories we must be sure not to forget. History Downtown Cambridge Discovery (Ages 3 -5) Prepare: provide the name of a book/movie to read prior to the trip. Go: Provide a short tour that starts at the Visitors’ Center Continue: Suggest a picnic at the park Slavery in Maryland (Ages 6-9) Prepare: give the name of a book to read prior to the trip Go: Suggest a stop on the HTURR Byway Continue: More activities Jefferson Communications, LLC Proprietary Information 929 West Street, Suite 210, Annapolis, MD 21401 I ph. 410-263-1641 fax. 410-280-0255 I ChesapeakeFamily.com

  18. 18. Why Content Management? Content Management Systems allow website pages to be easily maintained and updated. This includes, for example, adding new pages or removing pages. This is the main advantage above building a website in straightforward HTML that would normally be the end product of using some type of HTML editor. Why Joomla! Multiuser and Multilevel environment - many users can interact and contribute to the development of a Joomla-based site. Users can be assigned to different groups with different privileges; WYSIWYG editor - the intuitive What You See Is What You Get editor allows for easy editing of the content online; Additional components / modules - the Joomla system can be easily enhanced with additional functionalities from integrating a forum to installing an E-commerce solution Open Source - there is a huge pool of community resources available to provide support. There is an enormous pool of people supporting the product. The forum on the Joomla.org site has over 200,000 members all providing support and input into making Joomla! a better product. Adding sections and categories along with new navigation for your site is simple. You can even reorganize your site's content handily and all content is searchable. Content management systems like Joomla! allow users to add and edit the content without needing to know HTML or have technical expertise in Web design.

  20. 20. Search Engine Optimization Here are the five legs of SEO: Have topically relevant links from important sites (get incoming links from relevant sites that rank higher than your site). Anchor Text (link the search words in content on your site with other sites – don’t use “click here”). Keyword-rich title tags (these are the page titles at the top of your screen). Keyword-rich content (use the search words you want to be found by within text on your site). Internal hierarchical linking structure (have your site designed so links from one section to another follow a structure  - basically if you make your site easy for the user to navigate around you will have completed this step). Remember that the keywords you select for your site should be relevant to your business and popular with the people searching.
