Young American Heroes (YAH) is a suite of digital biography and storytelling tools designed to help youngsters learn about the lives and times of important figures in American history, become engaged in “doing history” themselves, and develop a more active voice among their peers and community. The YAH pilot materials were designed to engage middle school-age students in learning US history content through digital biography and storytelling. The project team conducted pilot tests of YAH materials in three demographically varied Connecticut middle schools. This paper discusses the results in student learning, student appeal, and teacher use of the tools.
