Primary Source Publications
As a logical outgrowth of the many curriculum units prepared by teachers following completion of Primary Source courses, we began to create materials for national publication in 1999. Dynamic collaboration among scholars, teachers, and Primary Source curriculum specialists have resulted in Making Freedom: African Americans in U.S. History (2004), The Enduring Legacy of Ancient China (2006), and China Since 1644: A History through Primary Sources (2013).
