Gale Brings Smithsonian Treasures to Middle and High School Classrooms

“National and state curriculum standards require primary sources to be incorporated into history classes, but material is often scattered and time-consuming for educators to gather. With the launch of Smithsonian Primary Sources in U.S. History, Gale brings together 1,800 digital primary sources, including documents, maps, historical objects and more from the museums and archives of the Smithsonian, as well as from Gale’s own collections. These curated materials help libraries provide a one-stop resource to save educators’ time while satisfying curriculum requirements and enhancing the study of U.S. history.” (via Cengage Learning)
