Free Digital History Resources for Educators, Parents, and Students

CT Humanities reminds you of our free digital resources for educators, parents, and students. While the activities on TeachItCT.org are geared for in-classroom participation, they are adaptable, and the articles on ConnecticutHistory.org can be easily incorporated into distance learning programs. Along with our content partners Connecticut History Illustrated and The Connecticut Council for Social Studies, we work daily with experts from universities, libraries, museums, and historical societies from around the state to bring you the very best historical content. ConnecticutHistory.org provides new stories and connections each and every week, creating a mix of fun and fact, the famous and the obscure, and the surprising and the serious. Browse the entries in an ever-expanding collection of high-quality essays and short reflections by town, topic, person, or era.

ConnecticutHistory.org is dedicated to Bruce Fraser whose vision, motivation, and love of Connecticut history made this project possible.

ConnecticutHistory.org is a program of Connecticut Humanities developed in partnership with the University of Connecticut Digital Media CenterUniversity of Connecticut Libraries and the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.

ConnecticutHistory.org has been made possible in part by support from the State of Connecticut and major grants from the US Department of Education Fund for the Improvement of Education and the National Endowment for the Humanities: Because democracy demands wisdom.
