GEP Primary Resources for Learning and Teaching History Buff: Primary source newspapers, historic panoramas, audio What it is: I’ll admit it, when it comes to websites, I’m a judge-a-book-by-it’s-cover kind of gal. If the website isn’t user-friendly and visually appealing it is an almost guaranteed skip for me. History Buff is one of those forgettable websites. How to integrate History Buff into the classroom: History Buff is a website that can help history come to life through story, virtual tours, audio and primary source news papers. Once I got into History Buff, I really appreciated the connection to primary sources and the way that the “actual” newspapers bring history to life. Okay, now for demystifying the navigation of this site. Tips: History Buff has a newsletter you can subscribe to if you are, you know, a history buff. Please leave a comment and share how you are using History Buff in your classroom!
