Teaching with the Records of Congress

The Center for Legislative Archives—part of the National Archives—maintains some of the most historically valuable documents created by the federal government: the records of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

Educators can use these historical documents to teach about representative democracy, how Congress works, and the important role Congress has played throughout American history.
