The Maine Department of Education, in cooperation with Franco-American specialists from the University of Maine System, has created a resource guide to help K-12 teachers and students locate available Franco-American resources about Maine and New England.
The new, sortable guide organizes resources by discipline, grade level, source type, time period and location. To recommend additional resources, please contact Susan Pinette, director of Franco-American Studies at the University of Maine.
This guide was created under the direction of Chapter 17, LD 77, passed by the 125th Maine State Legislature.
Franco-American communities exist in nearly every county in the state. Teachers interested in engaging local communities may contact the Franco American Centre at the University of Maine for an updated list of people who would be interested in exploring possible collaborations.
Contact Yvon Labbé at firstname.lastname@example.org to find contacts in your area.
