HISTORY MATTERS is 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college teachers (and their students) a starting point for exploring American history on the Web with 800 first-person historical documents for use in the classroom, an annotated guide to 700 quality, history websites, and a range of teaching resources (including sample syllabi, teaching assignments, and forums). HISTORY MATTERS is a project of the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University and the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning of the City University of New York. The HISTORY MATTERS website was created with support from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities. The 2002-2003 forums are funded by the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities
