The ADE is gathering information from its various projects aimed towards helping students and teachers use documents in their work. Editions are a great source for working on projects that require the use of primary sources, such as those done for National History Day competitions and research seminars.
Below are just some of the pages created by ADE members to provide curriculum units to help teachers use documents in the classroom:
- The First Federal Congress Papers, George Washington University — Birth of a Nation: The First Federal Congress 1789-1791 online exhibit and teacher’s guide.
- The Emma Goldman Papers, University of California, Berkeley — Curriculum for Middle and High School Students
