WINDOWS ON HISTORY

Civic Engagement through Local History Projects

Windows on History projects challenge K-12 students to develop new skills in interpreting the past, using primary source documents and artifacts from archives at libraries, museums, and historical societies in their own communities.

As they investigate topics in local history, students learn to see connections with national events and stories, and to build interpretations of the past that are guided by careful critical questioning. Together, students, teachers, and community partners create websites to share their discoveries with audiences beyond the classroom.
