My Take

Overall, I find this website to be a valuable teaching tool when teaching whole groups or upper level grades. I think that there is so much information on this site that younger students will find it hard to pick and choose what information to use.

How I Use It

With the implementation of primary sources in the classroom I have found this website to be truly a valuable resource when teaching my 5th grade students history. The site provides a wealth of information using actual photos, documents, videos, and audio recordings from the past.
Using The Library of Congress has brought history to life for my students by allowing them to witness real life events that happened throughout history.
