If you are being asked to teach online, Teaching American History can help you plan for the new reality.
Connect to Our Community
Want to share a great idea you’ve come up with for your online classes? Or hear from others about how they are facing the challenge? As a community of practice, TAH offers teachers space to learn from and encourage one another in our Facebook groups.
You can also check out our blog series Teaching Online with TAH for interviews with members of our community who have experience bringing our document collections into their digital classrooms.
Create and Share Custom Document Collections
Our free and easy to use feature, Create Your Own Document Collection, allows you to create a document collection of primary sources and share it with your students via learning management systems like Google Classroom, Schoology or Blackboard. This FREE service makes it simple to locate primary sources for particular lessons and share them when students need them.
Documents and Discussion Questions
We have gathered copies of the document packets and discussion questions for several of our most popular seminar topics related to twentieth-century American history and government below. Each one consists of three sets of primary source readings related to a different theme, event, or idea in American history, along with discussion questions created by our scholars.
Available online and as downloadable PDFs, all of our Core Document Collections include study questions and supplemental resources to help make it easy for you to engage students in analyzing the text.
