“The content is allowed to shine in this product and I could see my students and teachers utilizing this product in several different ways. It could definitely be a supplement to an American history class as well as a resource for students to use when researching independently. I would say that students as young as grade 5 or 6 might be able to use the product and that the database can also be used for initial research by students in grades 11 or 12. The price point for this product is also quite easy to fit into a budget. … In sum, Defining Moments is a useful new entry into the online resource marketplace.”

“Exceedingly easy to search. Topics are discoverable via a keyword search, from an alphabetical list (Civil War: Gettysburg to Zoot Suit Riots), or a timeline (1804-2011). Once a topic like Gilded Age is selected, researchers can click on a variety of sublinks: Topics in Depth, Timeline, Topic Spotlights, Primary Sources, Biography, Glossary of People, Places, and Terms, Research Topics, and Resources. Each of these sublinks connects to further sources of information. … Information is thorough and will make history come alive for students. Features that will be most captivating for educators and students are the primary source documents. Important documents, journal entries, memoirs, and speeches bring the account to life. An abstract before the primary source content will provide an engaging overview for students. Secondly, the Glossary of Peoples, Places and Terms shows students the relationships during that era and clarifies wording. The Research Topics and Resources sections will provide teachers and students with extended subject ideas and further avenues for classroom investigation. … Both easily navigated and richly engaging for middle school and high school students. Lesson plans and teaching information make this invaluable for history teachers. Recommended.”
