National History Education Clearinghouse

The U.S. Department of Education is responsible for this well-executed and extremely interesting website which is "designed to help K-12 history teachers access resources and materials to improve U.S. history education in the classroom." There are many different areas to explore on this website, a few of which are "History Content", "Teaching Materials", "Issues & Research" and the "Weekly Quiz". This week's quiz is called "Fly Away Jim Crow". The "Sources" for the quiz questions and answers, and "Related Content" are to the right side of the quiz. The "History Content" section has features such as "Ask a Historian Archive" and "Website Reviews" of sites about teaching U.S. history. The "Issues & Research" section presently has two "Research Briefs", "Learning From History and Social Studies Textbooks" about the obstacles of students' learning from textbooks, and "What Happens When Students Read Multiple Sources in History Class" regarding the challenges students face when encountering historical documents and primary sources.
