While I already mentioned Teaching the Journal of American History in another post, I want to highlight their recent update. Lacy Ford’s article from the June 2008 issue (Reconfiguring the Old South: ‘Solving’ the Problems of Slavery, 1787-1838) is now available for free. The author provides six interesting exercises that you could use in class. Each exercise has several questions, related primary sources, and suggestions for further reading. Even if you do not use the article, be sure to check out the primary sources that are available. This site also provides free access to several other articles from the Journal of American History, including one on the Lincoln-Douglas debates and the Scopes Trial.
