Learnist has many great resources and this post shares five that look at various times in American History. Check the list below to see if any are on interest to you (quoted from post):

* The New Deal -  primary source images and posters that can be used to study the CCC, Depression, and New Deal. She also includes articles to provide information about this period.

* American Revolution - an interesting approach to curating the Revolution, choosing material that provides a comparative study between the American and Egyptian revolutions, as well as other learnings about the founding of our nation.

* The Nastiest Campaigns in American History - [a look at] the worst mudslinging in election history.

* American Civil War -  outstanding resource for teaching the American Civil War–there are causes and effects there, as well as links to excellent online resources and documentaries.

* Protest: Music and Movements that Shaped Society - protest in American social history
