Learning from Inclusive Sources

This website is the start of a service for K-12 social studies teachers to provide inclusive primary sources. Often history is written by the winners, but to truly understand history we need to hear from the under-represented voices as well. Here we provide not only the sources but we scaffold them for use at various levels of education so that any teacher can use them.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
