What Tara Walters says about Awesome Stories:

Awesome Stories is an amazing way to include primary resources into my fifth grade classroom.  I am always looking for a way to make history come alive to my students. Awesome Stories helps me to do that. The stories help my students really understand the history and they learn about perspectives. Integrating language arts and history in an engaging way is very important to me. I want my student to be able to see how these subjects intertwine and relate to each other. I love how easy Awesome Stories makes that for me. I am easily able to correspond the stories to my state standards. I love this awesome resource!
