Picturing United States History: An Online Resource for Teaching with Visual Evidence

The development of a digital teacher resource on using visual evidence for high school and undergraduate United States history and culture classes.

PICTURING UNITED STATES HISTORY is a digital resource that seeks to improve teaching about US history and culture by providing Web-based materials that help teachers incorporate visual evidence into their classroom practice. Following the model of our HISTORY MATTERS website, it will include: model teaching materials on major topics in U.S. history, an annotated database of online visual resources, moderated forums on teaching with visuals, reviews of print and online resources, essays that assist in using visual evidence, and sample classroom activities. At the heart of the website will be model teaching resources created by five interdisciplinary teams of scholars designed to teach a significant topic or theme in the U.S. history survey.
