National History Day

I was a history teacher for many years and I miss it. The other day our 10th grade history teacher asked me to help him with resources for the students and also be a judge in selecting the top 5 to send the National History Day contest. I was thrilled!  I was working with history again.  I have been looking for so many resources.  Looking for what other teachers and librarians do when access to primary resources. It has been exciting to see students look at the Library of Congress online and see what they have to offer.  I love books, but right now technology helps us bring resources to those who can’t travel to every library and help them with their time. I am loving this!


  1. Sandy,
    You should check out the PBS Teacherline course Teaching with Primary Sources from the Library of Congress. It is a national course and I am facilitating a cohort right now. It is a fabulous course about how to access, select, and use primary sources. As a history lover you would really like this course!
