Lesson Plans

Teaching with primary documents encourages a varied and active learning environment for teachers and students, and fosters the development of lifelong learning skills.

The following curricula were created by graduate research assistants using primary source materials from the holdings of the Georgia State University Library’s Special Collections and Archives. All of the lessons plans were created to adhere to national and state education standards. Some of the lesson plans contain documents that are reproduced from the original form, and may be printed and reproduced for classroom use.

We encourage teachers to develop lesson plans derived from our collections. For more information, please contact the Special Collections and Archives at 404-413-2880 or
