The North American Midlands Web Site: Resources for Teaching and Learning American History in a Global Perspective

A materials development project to design and initiate a digital archive and website on the history of the Great Lakes region from the 17th through the early 20th centuries.

The project will create a digital archive, interpretive materials, research tools, and downloadable lesson plans based on the collections of the Newberry Library. The materials will support teachers' efforts to place local and regional history in a World History context, focusing on the Great Lakes region of the U.S. and Canada from the 17th to 20th centuries. Teachers and students in grades 8-12 and early college will be able to search the digital image archive, use teacher-written lesson plans, and build their own interpretations.
