History Links: Teaching American History

Now and again I want to start introducing everyone to historically oriented websites that I have found beneficial and valuable in my learning and teaching. The first one I want to introduce you to is a project sponsored by Ashland University known as: www.teachingamericanhistory.org

Although the website is definitely geared toward teachers and providing them the necessary resources to introduce students to American History, I believe this site is wonderful for all students of history. The documentary library provided is the most comprehensive tool which is divided up into multiple eras allowing for quick access to primary resources on a multitude of topics. Teaching American History also provide audio lectures from professor on various topics of history and biographies of individuals. Despite being long they can help steer one in a general direction. Additionally, they offer seminars for teachers to attend throughout the year. Conveniently they provide times and locations that make it accessible for teachers in multiple areas. With lesson plans and even a grant available on the website, teachingamericanhistory.org is a fantastic site for all teachers and students of history
