History Matters Wins AHA Teaching Resource Prize
The American Historical Association awarded the American Social History Project and the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University the 2005 James Harvey Robinson Prize for our website History Matters: The U.S. Survey Course on the Web. The Robinson Prize is awarded biennially for the teaching aid that has made the most outstanding contribution to the teaching and learning of history in any field for public or educational purposes. In the award program, the AHA lauded History Matters as “an incredibly rich and ‘user friendly’ web site” and as “a model of its kind.” This is the second Robinson Prize given to one of our projects: our CD-ROM, Who Built America? From the Centennial Celebration of 1876 to the Great War of 1914, won the 1994 prize.
