In many of our presentations, we had world history teachers ask where they can find additional materials for their classes. We mentioned two sites for searching resources available from across the Smithsonian, and I wanted to be sure our group members had access to those!
Primary source material: As the website notes, you'll find "568,100 images, video and sound files, electronic journals and other resources from the Smithsonian's museums, archives & libraries" at http://collections.si.edu
As always, you can find lessons, interactives, videos, podcasts, & artifacts from the National Museum of American History at http://historyexplorer.si.edu. The resources above will also be included in our weblinks section, so you can use History Explorer to get wherever you want to go!
Thanks so much for posting these resources Naomi. At EDSITEment we have been working with some of the top World History outfits and AP teachers to develop a really comprehesive site for resources. In the meantime we have a number of EDSITEment reviewed WH websites which may be of use to those teachers who follow you on this blog.
