Learning about Tennessee History in TEL

August 23, 2022

TEL is a hub for learning about Tennessee, no matter your age.

Newspaper resources such as the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Nashville Tennessean, and Knoxville News Sentinel provide primary sources from across the state.

Free resources like the Blue Book, State Symbols, and the Tennessee Encyclopedia of History and Culture are good for elementary and middle schoolers.

Gale In Context: Elementary has an encyclopedia page on "Tennessee" as well with tons of helpful information.
