Use this site as part of a knowledge-hunt about the actual text of the Constitution or prepare your students for a trip to the National Archives, if you are fortunate enough to be teaching nearby.

This site from the University of Virginia provides transcripts of oral history interviews conducted with former slaves in the 1930s as part of the WPA projects. The site includes more than a dozen interviews, along with commentaries on the material which help provide context and suggest areas for further study. Excellent primary resource for students trying to understand what slavery was really like.

tag(s): africa (180), african american (113)

In the Classroom

Play the audio portions of this site over the interactive whiteboard to help students understand the reality of living as a slave in the Antebellum South. There is also a transcript teachers could print out to assist students who have trouble discerning the words or need to be guided. This would be a great resource for a US history class studying the lead up the the Civil War.

The Library takes an overview of African American experiences over the past 300 years in American history. Emphasis is on selected primary sources and their relationship to overall black and American development.

tag(s): africa (180), african american (113)

In the Classroom

Use the primary documents on this site to introduce the Slave trade AND the importance of analyzing primary sources in history. Print out 5-6 of the primary sources on this site assigning student groups one of the sources. Have groups analyze and interpret the content of their source with the intentions of presenting their results to the class briefly through a speech. After all the groups have presented their findings, each group will send one representative to the front of the class where students will defend their piece by its validity and reliability. Survivor style, the class will vote off documents in rounds until one piece is left standing - the most valid and reliable. An interesting way to combo both content and historical thinking skills in one class!

The title has nothing to do with the book by the same name, but this page offers lots of detail about people and places involved in the American revolution in New York state. Developed as a labor of love by a TV producer and web designer, there's a lot of primary source content and surprisingly detailed graphics. Well worth a visit.

tag(s): evolution (100), new york (26)

In the Classroom

Have students read one of the "valley dweller" stories during a lesson on the effects of Revolution and political separation in the colonies. Have students read different stories, or at least choose from one of a few stories, and write a letter based on the reading. Students can write a letter from the perspective of their chosen valley dweller, detailing what life is like to someone not in the immediate area. This is a great way to wrap up a lesson, allowing students to reflect on the days events.
