National History Day, in collaboration with the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Consortium, created this open-access student guide filled with hints, tips, and activities to encourage student inquiry and historical research. Finding, Analyzing, and Constructing History: A Research Guide for Students was developed through a Teaching with Primary Sources grant from the Library of Congress.
