Oregon Time Web: A Digital Teaching Resource

The creation of an online timeline examining Oregon and Pacific Northwest history, based on the Oregon Historical Society's primary source holdings.

The Oregon Time Web, an interactive timeline presenting historical phenomena from multiple perspectives, will raise students' interest in the historical research process and prompt them to question a primary source's context, its author, and its point of view. It will draw much of its content from the documents available through the Oregon Historical Society's History Project. It will encourage students to reconstruct the context in which a document was created by connecting each primary source to a web of related sources; it will help teachers design lessons that meet Oregon's social studies benchmarks; and it will use the Oregon Historical Society's document collection as a window onto major issues in national and world history.
