The most valuable "gateway" to Web-based resources for teaching the U.S. History survey.
Particularly valuable for its annotated list of Web sites (www.history...), selection of sample
Web-based lessons (digital blackboard) and collection of primary documents emphasizing the experience
of "ordinary" Americans (many pasts) sections.
A convenient place to find the complete electronic text of every major slave narrative.
Contains a helpful introduction to the slave narrative by William L. Andrews, one of the foremost
authorities on this genre.
An excellent place to send students who wish to do research on the treatment of Japanese-Americans
during the Second World War. Provides an extensive set of links to other Web sites and to
relevant Web-based primary sources.
One of the finest teaching Web sites currently available. Contains a series of extensive
collections of primary sources originally produced by Project Whistlestop. Covers not only
the major decisions of Truman's presidency in both domestic and foreign policy, but also "the
Incarceration of Japanese-Americans During World War II." Sample lesson plans can be
found in the "Teacher Resource" portion of the "Education" section of the Web site.
