U.S. history apps that are "revolutionizing" education. I have the Civil War App, and it is so amazing it is hard to describe! It is based on a day by day exploration into what was happening...includes letters from both northern and southern people involved in the war, newspaper articles and more. It is a treasure of primary source materials!
Turn historical figures into Wanted Figures. This can especially effective if you have students take the point of view of one side of a war or battle. Why would the English put George Washington on a Wanted Poster?
