WebLessons takes teachers beyond the textbook

Bound textbooks may be the backbone of U.S. History instruction, but TAH evaluators are looking for innovation and change. It only makes sense to include in your program a technology component that gives teachers broad access to thousands of primary sources on the World Wide Web—far more than could ever be contained in a textbook. That's not all. WebLessons supports teachers by framing all that great Web content around an effective instructional model that helps students understand, analyze, and reflect on historical events.
