World War I changed everything.
Let's change how students think about the War.

The United States World War One Centennial Commission and the National World War I Museum & Memorial have come together with partners, including the Department of Education, the Library of Congress, the National Archives, HISTORY Channel, and the American Battle Monuments Commission, to pool their education resources about World War I into a bi-monthly education eNewsletter and an easy-to-navigate online collection.

Starting officially in June, each issue of the newsletter will focus on a different topic related to the First World War and will include an extensive selection of articles, lessons, teaching guidelines and primary sources that you can freely use, arriving in your inbox on the third Tuesday of every other month.
All content will be vetted by historians and educators, so you can trust in its accuracy and relevancy. Past newsletter issues and resources will also be added to the online collection for your convenience.

Please help us spread the word about this newsletter; anyone can subscribe!
