History Matters wins Robinson Prize

The American Historical Association has awarded the James Harvey Robinson Prize for “outstanding contribution to the teaching and learning of history” to History Matters: The U.S. Survey Course on the Web. History Matters was created by CHNM in collaboration with the American Social History Project at the Graduate Center, City University of New York.

The award citation praised History Matters for being “an incredibly rich and ‘user friendly’ web site.” The prize committee found that History Matters “offers students and teachers an amazing array of online resources, ranging from expansive lists of annotated web sites, to annotated syllabi that take viewers behind the scenes to see how various classroom activities actually worked (or didn’t), to intensive guides of how to use various types of primary sources. As such, History Matters is a model of its kind presented in a highly attractive and easy-to-navigate format.”
