Website Review: Monticello Digital Classroom

MONTICELLO DIGITAL CLASSROOM provides a wealth of information and educational resources about Thomas Jefferson and his life at Monticello.
A companion project to the Thomas Jefferson Monticello website, this archive contains 693 media items, 155 lesson plans, and 54 articles. Users can browse by topic such as slavery, American Revolution, and the Louisiana Purchase. The resource provides opportunities for both students and teachers.
Librarians will find this comprehensive resource to be useful for K-12 social studies teachers. Many of the articles contain options for elementary, middle, or high school reading levels making them particularly useful for targeted, informational reading experiences. An emphasis on primary source documents makes this website particularly useful for the informational literacy curriculum.
