Working with Challenging Primary Sources
To promote student engagement with meaningful texts, we've created a new, free online resource for teachers offering strategies for teaching reading and writing focused on challenging primary sources:

In keeping with the theme of this years Atlantic and College Board Writing Prize, these modules were developed for AP U.S. History teachers, but the nonfiction reading and writing strategies they explore will be useful for teachers of a variety of AP subjects.
