An Open Educational Resource for Who Built America

The development of an open educational resource (OER) for college-level and advanced high school students based on content from the popular textbook Who Built America? Working People and the Nation’s History. The OER will also integrate interactive materials from an existing website, History Matters: The U.S. Survey Course on the Web.

ASHP/CML proposes to create an open education resource (OER) that integrates the narrative of its textbook Who Built America? Working People and the Nation’s History with enhanced, interactive resources from the website History Matters: The U.S. Survey Course on the Web. This new project—Who Built America? / OER—will offer instructors and students a multi-layered resource that provides a linear and analytical historical narrative, and the digital means to look beyond the text to understand how its narrative was constructed. The project encompasses three goals: to create an open digital version of Who Built America? that extends and updates its distinctive narrative for college and advanced placement students; to update, expand, and enhance the resources in the textbook and History Matters so these vital materials remain available; and to integrate the textbook narrative, primary sources, and teaching resources in a multi-layered OER.
