Welcome to our site!

As we have explored the enduring themes of "Establishing, Expanding, and Contesting Freedoms." over the last five years as a part of this Teaching American History Grant, we have had the opportunity to truly explore the importance of teaching students to "DO HISTORY."  On many occasions, this means having students move beyond the textbook to explore the documents and artifacts that historians use to write the history of our country.

We invite you to explore these resources we have developed to help students to do history beyond the textbook!
