Abstract: This paper explores using on-line primary sources and the Inquiry Method and their effective use with the teaching and learning of content area studies. Content areas include reading and language arts, social studies, science and health, and math. Using original documents and artifacts from the Library of Congress Website and the Inquiry Method, provides opportunities for students to use analysis skills to read photographs, make personal connections, use map and location skills, prints, texts, use visual, auditory, and kinesthetic skills, inquiry skills, and connect meaning to the content area studies. Infusing on-line primary sources and the Inquiry Method into the teaching and learning of subject area studies, assist with in-depth understanding, retention, and application of content and provides opportunities for authentic learning experiences.
