American History - Explore the turbulent, colorful, and world-changing events of 20th century America with this site that gives decade-by-decade summaries of what was happening in literature, education, music, scientific developments and artistic achievements. Vintage photographs and links to related resources are provided. There is quite a bit to read and investigate on this entertaining site which, unfortunately, is not searchable. But sift through the vast resources to isolate the areas that will fit best with your curriculum, and take your students to the computer lab for an independent Web hunt to introduce or enhance an American history lesson.

tag(s): 20th century (52)

In the Classroom

Find the time period that is applicable to your class unit and share the site on the interactive whiteboard or projector. Use the site as a resource for students working on research projects. The site offers information about architecture, art, literature, fashion, politics, etc. about every time period. The site would be an excellent jump-off point for students beginning their research or still in the process of selecting a research topic.
