The National Archives has launched DOCS Teach, a new online took for teaching primary documents. This tool contains lessons plans centered around primary sources and even allows you to design your own lessons that focus on various historical thinking skills. It also provides social media communities where teachers can share their ideas. In addition to the lesson plans, the site offers access to over 3000 primary documents from the National Archives.
If you are preparing lessons, doing your field experience, or going to be student teaching soon you MUST check out this site. What a goldmine!
Wow! Now is the time to be a history teacher! Go tell your friends!
