Educators from the National Archives will visit your classroom and bring the National Archives to you…virtually.

Starting in the 2014–2015 school year, a whole new menu of programs will be available on topics ranging from the United States Constitution, to World War I, to Baseball.  There will be programs for all grade levels and all programs are FREE of charge.

Each program will focus on document-analysis strategies. Please stay tuned so that you can include one of these programs in your planning for next school year!

As the permanent home of the Constitution, we offer programs connecting this founding document to our government’s actions. National Archives Identifier 1667751

  1. I am the social studies coordinator for my school district in Tallahhass, FL. Dr. Flanagan gave a small workshop here a few months ago and I am excited about sharing all the Archives’ resources with all my teachers even more in the year to come. Thank you and keep up the great work! The distance learning prospect seems very exciting. Please let me know if there is anything I could do to help.

  2. Thank you for your comment, Mr. Wetherington! We are glad to hear you’re finding the resources helpful and we look forward to reaching even more students and teachers next school year!
