DIGITAL APUSH features AP U.S. History student projects that apply data from the Chronicling America Historic Newspaper collection.
For the past couple years, students in AP U.S. History in Sunapee, New Hampshire have been using the Library of Congress’ newspaper database to conduct historical research into a wide range of topics from questions. This website shares their projects.
Librarians will find this website to be an excellent way to introduce high school students to digital history projects that make use of online collections. Encourage students to build their own projects.
This project was a winner in the Chronicling America Historic Newspaper Data Challenge.
