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.
