  • Description

Educator and technology trainer Thomas Daccord has painstakingly selected and compiled this guide to the best history sites for use in high school, academic, and public libraries. The Best of History Web Sites is the quickest path to a rich variety of content, including multimedia presentations, subject gateways, lesson plans and activities, primary resources, interactive quizzes and games, virtual tours, maps and atlases, statistical collections, and more. Based on his award-winning Internet portal, this new resource describes over 800+ Web sites covering United States, ancient and medieval, and modern history. Each entry includes the complete URL and a detailed annotation. Unique to this resource are easy-to-identify categories that indicate the type of content featured on the site; grade level recommendations; and "Best Of" selections that identify the best e-texts, research and plagiarism sources, advanced placement study guides, virtual tours, and more. Two special introductory chapters help librarians and educators learn to locate and evaluate history Web sites and integrate them into the educational or library setting. Librarians and educators will find this an ideal starting place for designing lesson plans, helping students complete assignments, getting researchers started on specific subjects, creating pathfinders, or even answering history-related reference questions.
