EDSITEment is the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) web site with student activities and lesson plans for teachers

About EDSITEment

EDSITEment is a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Trust for the Humanities.

EDSITEment offers free resources for teachers, students, and parents searching for high-quality K-12 humanities education materials in the subject areas of history and social studies, literature and language arts, foreign languages, arts, and culture.

All websites linked to EDSITEment have been reviewed for content, design, and educational impact in the classroom. They cover a wide range of humanities subjects, from American history to literature, world history and culture, civics, language, art, architecture, and archaeology, and have been judged by humanities specialists to be of high intellectual quality. EDSITEment is not intended to represent a complete curriculum in the humanities, nor does it prescribe any specific course of study.

The EDSITEment experience includes:

  •     Lesson plans composed of primary-source-rich activities suitable for elementary, middle school, high school, and Advanced Placement classrooms.
  •     Resources for National History Day projects, including “Ask an Expert” videos and Learning Lab collections specific to the annual theme.
  •     Teacher’s Guides that provide resources, project ideas, and access to NEH funded projects and programs on a variety of topics, eras, and people.
  •     Google Classroom compatible student activities that incorporate multi-media resources and interdisciplinary learning.
  •     Chronicling America, the database of historic newspapers from across the United States developed in collaboration with the Library of Congress.
  •     Resources for Constitution Day, heritage months, holidays, and more!

EDSITEment was selected as “Best for History” in 2019 by Scholastic Education and as one of the top 25 websites by the America Association of School Librarians in 2010. EDSITEment has been accepted into the Smithsonian Institution's Permanent Research Collection of Information Technology, the world's premier historical record of computing applications and innovations.
