Listen to history with Discovery Education!

When you think of what DE streaming offers, the first thing that comes to mind is probably videos, right?  While we do have a vast library of video content, there’s much more to DE!

One of DE’s “hidden gems” is our collection of original audio recordings of historic speeches. If you’re not already familiar with our Advanced Search, now is a good time to give it a try! Click on Advanced Search, under the search box, and enter “speech” as your keyword, then in the Media Type drop-down box, choose “audio”, and finally, click Search!

As you can see, we have recorded speeches by historical luminaries such as JFK, Truman, Ford, FDR, as well others as diverse as Winston Churchill, Amelia Earhart, and Thomas Edison himself!

These recordings are a treasure trove of opportunities to make history come alive, and take your classroom beyond the textbook!
