Site offers uses for pre-service and in-service teachers who can and cannot make the actual trip to the newseum. There are pre visit portals as well as lesson ideas for actual trips and for those not able to make the trip the lessons make use of newseum materials with links to current and past news items. Great way to get 7-12 students to integrate Enlgish and social studies skills/content in one project/assignment.
Easy to navigate and openlinks. Materials on site do not require any advanced skills or applications.
Time spent reviewing site:
Several hours reviewing as well as introducing pre-service teachers to classroom lesson/activities ideas.
