Abraham Lincoln and His Era: Using the American Memory Project to Teach with Primary Sources is the perfect springboard for incorporating primary source materials into the classroom. The book is organized around a series of primary sources from the Library of Congress website, specifically the American Memory Collection and Abraham Lincoln's era.

Through this information-filled book, teachers and librarians will learn how to use the Library of Congress website and enhance learning with primary source materials. Differentiated instruction and evaluation techniques are included, as are lesson plans, rubrics, and analysis tools. In addition, the book will help teachers create their own lesson plans, analysis tools, and rubrics for other primary sources that correspond to their current lessons/activities. Grades 4-8
