History Matters

History Matters , first developed at City University in NYC and George Mason near Washington, contains teaching materials, primary source documents and threaded discussions with leading U.S. history historians. Like this site, it serves as a gateway to pre-screened, quality websites – about 400 now, divided into ten chronological and twenty-two thematic categories.

The quality of this site reflects both the authors’ expertise in history and social science education. Guidelines for sifting primary source evidence are provided. Examples of student publications on the Web will give you great ideas. Leading American historians link past and current events and analyze maps and music and much more. A not-to-be-missed site!!
