Using the Site (Tutorial)

Welcome to the Gilder Lehrman website! We have collected a wealth of teaching resources here, and hope that you will enjoy exploring the resources and essays.

In addition to ready-to-use lesson plans, you will find handouts for your students, special documents from our Collection with background information and questions for discussion, activities, secondary sources like podcasts of lectures and essays from leading historians, and teaching strategies to build your own custom lessons. The video below explains the design and purpose of the site. If you do not have access to the Affiliate-only resources, please email to activate your account.
