Recent U.S. History – Digital History Assignment

This project introduces students to the history of archival websites, the arguments for and against the use of crowdsourcing as a means of building and developing an online history collection, and the potential and perils of digital history.  It requires them to discover, contribute to, and assess different crowdsourced archival history projects.  When completed students will be able to read and contextual a variety of historical sources, critique and evaluate evidence, and engage in a thoughtful dialog about the purpose and value of digital history.
