We are seeking opinionated, engaging and informed middle and high school students to join our Newseum Student Advisory Team for the 2015-2016 school year.
The Newseum is honored to announce a gift of $110,000 from the For Action Initiative (FAI) and the Families of September 11 Organization. The donation will fund a new "Teaching 9/11" learning module on the Newseum’s innovative website for teachers and students.
To help students understand what happened and why on that fateful day, the new curriculum will be designed in the same way as Newseum lessons on the five freedoms of the First Amendment – by immersing students in interactive exhibits and classroom lessons on media ethics, “choosing” the news and what constitutes student speech.
WASHINGTON — Today, the Newseum launched the latest component of its free website: “Women, Their Rights and Nothing Less.” The new learning module builds on the site’s rich civil rights resources to include one of the largest online collections of primary sources and historic periodicals about the women’s suffrage movement.
“Women, Their Rights and Nothing Less: The First Amendment and the Women’s Suffrage Movement” has been endorsed by the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS), an association dedicated to supporting social studies education.
Incorporate NewseumED resources in your classroom or enrich your research project with rare, hi-res primary sources.
