The Best of the Humanities on the Web

Working together, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the MCI Foundation have created this website in order to bring together some of the best online humanities resources from the world’s great museums, libraries, and universities. Even a cursory glance would indicate that they have done a splendid job, and this site warrants several visits in order to take full advantage of these materials. Along the top of the homepage, visitors will find thematic tabs that will direct them to some of the resources in the areas of history, art, literature, and foreign languages. For visitors who are looking for just a taste of these offerings, they may want to take a look at the monthly feature, which include tours of the National Mall, celebrations of Native American history, and explorations of women’s history. Visitors will also take comfort knowing that every website profiled on the site has been reviewed for content, design and educational impact in the classroom. Also, in terms of classroom activities, the site contains dozens of lessons plans that draw on the online resources offered here in an attempt to promote active learning.
