Social Work and Social Welfare History
Resources on the Web

It is September, and time for newly enrolled BSW students to begin their Introduction to Social Work Courses.  One of the most difficult aspects of teaching beginning students is getting them interested and involved in the historical background of social work and social welfare.  Since this issue of the Update focuses on history, here are some online resources on social work and social welfare history that might be useful in your teaching.  Some are very attractively done, and include graphics and historical photos.  Best of all, these are free resources available to you and your students.
