Two New Sets of Primary Sources from the Library of Congress

These Primary Source Sets are compiled and written for educators. However, we think these collections will be of interest to many groups of users.

Check out these additions to the growing list of primary source sets, selected primary sources from the rich collections of the Library of Congress on a particular curricular topic. Designed for quick and easy download, each set includes a teacher's guide to historical context, teaching tips and analysis guides, and a graphic organizer to deepen student engagement with these rich artifacts from the past. Here are the newest topics:

+ The Industrial Revolution in the United States
Maps, songs, photos, and political cartoons tell the story of the United States' transition to an industrial nation.

+ The New Deal
Photographs, posters, oral histories, and music recount how Federal programs sought to end the Great Depression.
