      Great general resource for teachers who are looking for options to enhance their geography classes.  Online resources at reliable government websites to help augment lessons and skills.

      I would use this site as a resource for my students to do research for themselves.  I would also use some of the sites as alternate assignments for students.

      This site is an awesome resource for social studies teachers looking for internet resources to give their kids.  It is both credible and provides general enough resources that allow them to use it for all lessons.

Avalon Project - Documents in Law, History and Diplomacy - 1 views

    • kyleassad
       
      I would use this site as a reference for students who are looking for primary sources to supplement text books.  It helpful to see the actual text of documents instead of trying to read the handwriting.

      This site would be useful for social studies teachers as they navigate many different topics, and would like to use primary source text to augment their teaching.  It lacks certain citing items, which hurts credibility, but it is the Yale Law School, which lends credibility.

      It is a comprehensive resource for primary sources across history.  It doesn't speak to how they arrived or were able to translate the sources.

Cold War - 1 views

    • Jordan Manuel
       
      This site makes excellent use of primary source documents to portray the climate of Soviet-US relations in the Cold War. Telegram cables between the govts and reports from USSR Central Committee meetings.

      I would make wide use of this site in a U.S. history class. I would be able to show my students the Soviet perspective on US activities during the Cold War, which I think would be valuable as a comparison to our historical accounts of the same events.

      As far as usability, it is a rather basic site. However it does provide a wealth of primary source documents that would be helpful for any social studies teacher.

Battle Lines: Letter's from American Wars - 0 views

    • Alan Edwards
       
      This website was created by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. Their collection includes thousands of letters written during wars of military service. It is an active site, and they ask people to send in war letters to expand to the collection.

      As people get older and they come across old letters in the attic, hopefully they will want to contribute their personal correspondence for a greater public understanding of war.

      I think this would be a great activity during the study of any war. It would also make for a great activity on Veteran's Day. Using Joellen's SOAPS (speaker, occasion, audience, purpose, subject) analytical tool, students could examine different letters.

      The site is asking for people to submit war letters, a reflection of a commitment to keeping the project active.

    The Gilder Lehrman Institute created this site on letters written during war. You can view copies of original letters written by soldiers, generals, presidents, and family members during conflicts from the Revolution to the Persian Gulf War. But wait, there's more: actors read the letters aloud while you read along. They have organized the letters by five different themes: Enlisting, Comforts of Home, Love, Combat, and The End of War. Each theme includes letters from all different eras of US history.

About: DocSouth - 0 views

  •  
    DocSouth is a website run through UNC Chapel Hill that provides pirmary sources relating to the American South via the internet. It's a really simple site to use, but extremely rich with content. It also provides guides on how to site the materials found within the site and could be a very good web site from which to draw primary sources for the classroom and also to help teach research skills.
