From the makers of the award winning Civic Quotes iPad app, Congressional Moments explores key legislation that still impacts our lives today, including child labor, civil rights, the SEC, the National Park Service, the Marshall Plan and women's suffrage. Learn about the difference between primary and secondary sources by taking the interactive quiz. Look closely in the gallery at a wide range of photographs and images ordered by topic and type. Watch videotaped statements by two leading National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) teachers on how to get the most out of primary sources, and learn in the final section how to look at primary sources with a critical eye.

Superb Research App
Seldom does an app deliver beyond one's expectation, yet Congressional Moments impresses at every level. As a teaching/learning tool this app excels at research skills development by clearly and simply teaching what primary sources are. As a starting point for researching one of the several movements in US history, this app cannot be surpassed. Scores of primary sources are given, along with brief videos using primary source images, for each topic. The production value of each video can be used to teach proper documentary film techniques.
This app has been a very educational app for me and my fellow students at my school. I strongly recommend all teachers and student to download this app. 5 stars.
