The Congregational Library & Archives offers numerous resources for teaching, whether you are preparing an entire course or adding vibrancy to a single lesson plan.
The online catalog and the digital archive contain primary source documents such as first-person narratives from marginalized people groups, personal letters from historical figures, and diaries written by common people. Vital and church records from many of the earliest towns in New England provide chances to explore community history. Transcriptions are available alongside some of our online collections, making them more accessible to students.
Interested in having your students transcribe a page and see their work published later on our website? Please contact us at email@example.com for information on how to add a transcription exercise to your class.
From manuscripts to books, sermons, digitized records, and so much more, search our catalog to discover all the items we hold at the CLA.
