Our online tools make history, civics and media literacy relevant to students’ lives. We use the First Amendment as a springboard to illuminate the challenges of democracy and the importance of making informed decisions in a diverse and demanding world. Read why we feel First Amendment and media literacy should be linked in education. 

“The depth of questions to spark curiosity, discussion and research are very beneficial. … Your focus on primary source documents is right in line with Common Core and research — love it!” — Michele Galla, teacher, Wrangell, Alaska

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Through our programs and online tools, we now reach more than 11 million students, teachers and lifelong learners around the globe. In an effort to quantify the impact on students’ learning, we hired the education nonprofit organization Project Tomorrow to survey teachers who used NewseumED.org resources in spring 2016. Here’s what they told us.
