Education is one of the primary missions of the Missouri Digital Heritage Initiative. To meet this goal, lessons are available for elementary and secondary teachers who use archival sources to teach the value of original, historical documents. In addition, annotated bibliographies and links to sites of interest provide resources for teachers and students interested in gaining a deeper understanding of lesson topics. Using these programs and curricula, educators and students can develop a greater appreciation for the rich heritage of Missouri.
