History Alive: Virtually! features a curated set of digitized primary sources from the UA Little Rock Center for Arkansas History and Culture (CAHC). The sources are organized in ten thematic virtual mini-collections, each of which contains exercises that can be used in the face-to-face, virtual, or hybrid classroom. Every exercise highlights a historical issue that is investigated through the analysis of a primary source or a small set of primary sources. The exercises are complete activities aligned with Arkansas Social Studies Standards and include short introductory sections, links to additional resources, and a set of downloadable handouts for use in the classroom.
Additionally, CAHC Archivists have compiled a comprehensive list of all CAHC materials that have been digitized and are currently available. The lists are easily searchable and downloadable and provide helpful information for identifying the materials, such as Title, Description, subjects/topics, and links to the catalog records. Most significantly, each primary source has been matched to the Arkansas Social Studies Standards to make it easier for K-12 teachers to identify relevant teaching materials.
