Teaching About Rights in America
Internet Scout Report
This site from the National Archives is designed to provide educators with primary sources about the struggle for rights in the United States. However, any reader with an interest in American history will find much to ponder here.
In the Teaching Activities section, educators may choose from two dozen compelling classroom activities on topics that run the gamut from The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to the Integration of the U.S. Armed Forces to the Assimilation of American Indians.
The Primary Sources by Topic section provides fascinating original documents, photographs, and other paraphernalia on a range of topics. It’s a wonderful way for educators, students, and the generally curious to engage with primary sources related to Citizenship, Free Speech, Americans with Disabilities, Immigrants, and more than a dozen other topics.
