Reader review(s):

Wonderful Resource for Social Studies Teachers, September 12, 2000
Kathleen Craver does a wonderful job in this book describing how to use primary sources in the classroom. The first three chapters describe the concept behind using these resources in the classroom.

In the next 200 pages, she shares over 150 websites that contain primary sources. For each web site she gives a summary of the site and gives five or six questions for discussion or activities for students. This book will save you hours searching the Internet for resources. It is well written and has a good index for locating topics. If you are looking for ways to incorporate the Internet in your lessons this is a great way to get started.

This is a must resource book for your professional library.
