Social Studies Rap Songs: Teaching US History, Government, and Geography with Education... - 14 views

  •  
    A useful resource for engaging with Gen Y. The rap isn't bad (I think) and the quality of the historical information is quite good for a middle or high school level. They aren't free however they're not too expensive either.

    Very cool! You can download free audiobooks (and for once not all of them are C19th originals; some are quite recent) in a format that plays through iTunes and on your iPod/iPhone. For those of us who use iTunes to get our podcasts/lectures/etc this is good news indeed!

Internet Global History Sourcebook - 7 views

  •  
    I'm still looking for quality source sites relating to indigenous history and although this site is still under construction it looks like it will be a valuable contribution. Blessed be Paul Halsall and his History Sourcebooks project, the bane of textbook tyranny everywhere!

Subject:History - Wikibooks, collection of open-content textbooks - 9 views

  •  
    Still into the wikis. This collection doesn't show evidence of much development yet, however it could grow into a quality collection in future. Some of the topics are a little obscure. 'A History of Nejd'. Not quite sure on that one.

    Has primary sources uploaded by people who have registered with the site in many European languages, including English.
    Come to think of it, is English a European language anymore? Interesting...

    I thought I'd added these already to the group, however the Diigo toolbar tells me I hadn't and he's never to be doubted. Please don't ask how I know the toolbar is male.
    These collections are well-organised and high-quality. Focus on the US (for obvious reasons).
