Valentine's Day and President's Day Primary Sources
Treat yourself and your students to love letters from the Library of Congress’ Veteran’s History Project from the American Folklife blog: “Moments with You”: Correspondence in VHP Collections by Megan Harris (February 9, 2015). http://blogs.loc.gov/folklife/2015/02/moments-with-you-correspondence-in-vhp-collections/
Blogs from the Library of Congress provide a quick path to contextualized primary sources. For example, a wonderful blog from the Teacher Page - Celebrating Washington’s Birthday: A Presidential Blog Round-Up http://blogs.loc.gov/teachers/ provides links to presidential materials for use in the classroom including primary source sets, studies of the inaugurations, Washington’s “Rules of Civility, the writings of Theodore Roosevelt, and a primary source starter about point of view in statues of Abraham Lincoln.
