IdeaLabs: Artifact & Analysis
Getting Started

If we know how to look at artifacts, they can help us to better understand our history. The Smithsonian’s Artifact & Analysis IdeaLab shows you how to incorporate artifacts and documents into the teaching of U.S. history. Designed as a companion to the Advanced Placement Program U.S. History course, it is also effective in any instructional setting that emphasizes analytical thinking and writing.
