Herbert Hoover: Presidential Cartoons

During the summer of 2012, the Hoover Presidential Library held a weeklong workshop for educators emphasizing the use of primary sources with students grades 6–12. The grant was made possible through The Library of Congress Midwest Center for Teaching with Primary Sources administered by Illinois State University. Educators from across Iowa researched topics at the Hoover Presidential Library or online in the holdings of the Library of Congress. The following lesson plans were created by teachers and are presented as viewable webpages and editable Word documents so educators could modify them for use with their students.
