The Rhode Island Historical Society and Providence College are proud to present EnCompass: A Rhode Island History Digital Textbook, a new website geared toward educators across the state.
The EnCompass project, utilizing images of primary sources and artifacts, aims to provide teachers with resources, content, and activities for their classrooms. The target audience for the digital textbook will be students in Grades 7-12 statewide, from public, private, charter, and homeschool classrooms. The scope of the textbook covers consequential topics within Rhode Island history, starting with Roger Williams and eventually including immigration, industrialization, suffrage, and much more.
EnCompass is made possible in part by a grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities.
