History Related Webpages

The internet is a wonderful source to go to for any information that you might want on any subject. We found a few to help for strategies for teaching history. A few web pages that we found to be quite helpful were: The Library of Congress World Wide Web Home Page, The History Home Page, and the Lake Washington High School Social Studies Home Page.

The Library of Congress, address http://www.loc.gov/, is a catalog or similar to a table of contents that can connect the browser to other government related home pages.

The History Home Page, address http://www.panix.com/%7Esteel/, describes itself as an "Internet Directory for Social Studies Teachers." This directory is a list of home pages and gophers, that one can connect to, related to history or government.

The LWHS Social Studies Home Page, address http://wwwlwhs.lkwash....l_studies/default.html . This web page is a place to branch off of to find many other history related home pages
