Click on the buttons above to explore primary sources by historical era. You’ll find primary sources tagged by subjects found in the Tennessee Department of Education’s social studies content standards. When you click on a “subject” or a “content standard number”, the search will take you directly to primary sources that meet that specific subject or standard.
Please note, the content standard numbers reflect the numbers assigned in the 2014 version of the Tennessee Academic Standards for Social Studies. Educators are encouraged to consult the correlation documents prepared by the Tennessee Department of Education to determine how the 2014 number matches the newly assigned 2010 standard number. The subject links have been updated for the 2019 standards.
