About Us

Teach US History is a website composed of historic primary sources, media presentations, lesson plans, and background materials to help teachers teach various aspects of American history quickly and easily. The site is designed to be literally one stop shopping where in a matter of minutes educators can find resources and strategies and implement them with their students in their own classroom.

The site is composed of facsimiles of materials from the collections of the American Antiquarian Society and Old Sturbridge Village. It was developed collaboratively over time with a series of grant-funded projects that employed various scholars, educators, and institutions.
