Are you looking for primary sources for your students to use? Are you stumped at finding new places to get non-fiction historical text for your students? Do you need news articles for comparison and reflection?
Check out NY Times Machine!
We are currently doing a unit on the Civil War, and I can’t wait to show my students the actual news articles from when Lincoln was assassinated. We will compare the information here with what they have learned, dissect why it is somewhat different, and analyze how news is shared today (versus in 1865).
I’m really looking forward to using it for other learning objectives, such as…
– word choice
– spelling changes
– and more!
How do you see yourself using the NY Times Machine?
