Teacher Resources at the West Virginia & Regional History Center

Welcome to the Teacher Resources Guide for the West Virginia & Regional History Center at WVU Libraries.  This digital guide currently contains selected digitized photographs from the history of West Virginia divided into time eras for ease of use.  These primary sources provide an enrichment to West Virginia Studies lessons and a means to demonstrate national trends at the local level in US and world history. 

The tabs to the left provide easy navigation between time eras and include a tab for the Photo Analysis worksheet.  This worksheet will help students focus on the details of the photograph as they place them in the context of topics they may be studying. 

Click on the title below each photograph to see any additional information we have on the photograph.  If we haven't selected a digitized photograph of the topic you are studying, check West Virginia History OnView  to search and view all 50,000+  available photographs.

Please return often to see new content as it is added to the site. 

Students and teachers at Kimball High School, McDowell County, W. Va., 1950.
