A history portal for teachers - The Center for History and New Media. This portal provides access to many primary sources. One of the sections is Historical Thinking Matters - a website designed to teach students how to read and understand primary sources and how to develop historical narratives. One of the topics that is available is Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Lots of resources to examine from many points of view. Very well designed.
Do History is another segment that uses primary sources to piece together lives of ordinary people. Martha Ballard is the midwife they use as their example.
The Section on Research + Tools - shows individuals how to use different tools to study history.
This is a great portal with lots of information to investigate.
