Digital History

An online textbook that uses technologies to enhance teaching and research. A comprehensive site that offers primary sources such as court cases, historic newspapers, and landmark documents. Ethnic Voices are actual voices of real people: Asian Americans, Enslaved Voices, Mexican Americans, and Native Americans. There are teacher resources with handouts, lesson plans, exhibits, e-lections, and movies. Check out the virtual History of a House Divided and America's Reconstruction. There is even a Hyperhistorian you can ask specific questions.
