National History Day is pleased to announce a partnership with LexisNexis that will provide a free access period of 30 days for students and educators to primary source documents for research projects and classroom use through the web-based LexisNexis™ Primary Sources in U.S. History.
Through a link on the Web site www.nationalhistoryday.org, students and teachers will be able to register to access LexisNexis’ primary documents free of charge throughout the month of November. Authoritative American history resources will be available to students in three subject modules: U.S. Presidential History, African American History, and American Women’s History. Primary and secondary sources include scholarly and reference articles, chronologies, contemporary accounts, manuscripts, laws, court cases, speeches, photographs, political cartoons, and government documents.
The recent National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) on U.S. History found that students that were expose to primary sources in the classroom had a greater understanding of U.S. History. This partnership will hopefully engage more students and teachers in primary source documents.
