Teaching Resources for Your Classroom
Colonial Williamsburg offers a variety of quality
materials to assist you in teaching American history and civics, including:
AMERICA: THE POCKET GUIDE
This tiny guide introduces you to a very big idea: no matter who you are, where you come from, or what you believe, you are American if you believe in the idea of America. At the heart of America is a great debate over our shared democratic values: law and ethics, freedom and equality, diversity and unity, common wealth and private wealth. These values are all equally important but constantly in tension. America: The Pocket Guide describes these values and shows how the tensions between them have shaped and continue to shape our history.
THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE ELECTRONIC FIELD TRIP ON DVD
One of the most bitter presidential campaigns in U.S. history is part of a surprising lesson for a 21st-century student. Thomas Jefferson explains how negative campaigning, partisan politics, and contested elections have been part of our political system since the earliest days of the Republic.
Note: This DVD contains only the video and broadcast segments of the Electronic Field Trip. The lesson plans, web activities, and additional resources require a subscription.
