DocsTeach rocks primary sources!

I discovered National Archives Experience’s DocsTeach today, thanks to eSchoolNews.

My teachers are going to flip.  And so will my APUSH gang.

Searchable by time period, historical thinking skill, and tool, this new portal helps teachers find, use, and create instruction using more than 3,000 primary sources.

I love the open-ended approach to instruction and that this site can be many things to many different teachers–those who simply want to find documents and professionally crafted activities, those interested in customizing activities to meet their classroom’s needs, those interested in creating original critical thinking activities using the seven available tools (just add your favorite primary sources!)

and those who are interested in sharing work openly with other teachers and learners to help them build and remix additional instruction.

Share DocsTeach with a teacher you love today!
