History Mattersis a gateway to the Web for teachers of the U.S. History Survey course. It provides high school and college teachers (and their students) a starting point for exploring American history on the Web with a large number of first-person historical documents for use in the classroom, an extensive annotated list of Web links, and a range of teaching resources (sample syllabi, teaching assignments, and forums, for example). History Matters is a project of the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning of the City University of New York and the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. The History MattersWeb site was created with support from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities. The site is an in-progress prototype that will be expanding over the next two years.
