How I Use It
I have students navigate to the DocsTeach section of the website and create their own interactive learning activity with primary source documents. The templates and examples are excellent and a great way to get students to create a professional looking presentation by following the step-by-step process of collecting their "Docs" and building their presentation with these amazing resources.
The National Archives is a resource for teachers and students to engage with important historical documents* (meaning WAY more than written documents) that are AUTHENTIC and directly related to U.S History. These REAL artifacts are indisputable in their connections to our past and help students to see how their county was shaped over the centuries.
