Amazing resource for #sschat and history teachers!
This is an extremely comprehensive site focused on American history.
Below are just a few features. There are to many to put into one post. You’ll have to head over to Digital History yourself to check it all out.
“Digital History offers many ways to engage students in the study of history, from fact checks (multiple choice quizzes on every era of American history), to 19th century high school entrance examinations, a time machine, an interactive timeline that links to primary source documents, and a flash overview of American history.”
You will also find… “a U.S. history textbook; over 400 annotated documents from the Gilder Lehrman Collection, supplemented by primary sources on slavery, Mexican American, Asian American, and Native American history, and U.S. political, social, and legal history; succinct essays on the history of film, ethnicity, private life, and technology; multmedia exhibitions; and reference resources that include a database of annotated links, classroom handouts, chronologies, glossaries, an audio archive including speeches and book talks by historians, and a visual archive with hundreds of historical maps and images.”
I highly recommend this site. Tons of resources to discover as well as lesson plans using them.
