Supporting Innovative Resources for Millions of Students
NewseumED believes in creating rigorous resources that bring history, civics and media literacy to life.
In order to deeply engage students in learning, educators require primary sources and opportunities for students to interact with and make sense of their curriculum. Primary sources provide a first-person viewpoint, allowing students to learn by connecting with another human story instead of an intangible concept. Additionally, they allow students to interpret ideas for themselves, developing analysis and critical thinking skills. However, these kinds of curated resources are scarce, can be difficult to access for schools in remote locations and also can be costly to educators.
Thanks to our partners and sponsors, NewseumED provides free online access to thematic digital collections of primary and secondary sources to more than 7 million teachers and students. This free online resource room connects students to an ever-growing array of historical front pages, photographs, video interviews, engravings and newsreels and the information to put them in context, and provides teachers with flexible lesson plans and materials that are standards-aligned, including Common Core. Students and teachers gain access to artifacts in our museum’s collection, which contains over 35,000 print news pieces dating back to 1493.
