Through self contained modules, Digital History Reader presents key events in U.S. and European History and allows one to explore primary source material, evaluate conflicting accounts or interpretations and develop conclusions based on the evidence. Modules are organized around a central question, such as “Why did slavery emerge in Virginia?” and “How will historians treat Richard Nixon?” from which an inquiry can be launched. The module includes various types of evidence, primary source material, and multiple historical perspectives. In addition, you will find online assignments, quizzes and assessments.
