Newseum offers resources on Baltimore
The Newseum is one of my favorite museums to visit, both physically and virtually.
Established and supported in part by the Freedom Forum, the non-partisan museum’s mission is to champion the five freedoms of the First Amendment through exhibits, public programs and education.
Its rich array of archived newspaper front pages from around the world is sortable by region. The Digital Classroom presents a variety of standards-aligned learning modules, video lessons, and front page primary source collections:
With its newly posted Baltimore Riots Resources Collection, Newseum helps us lead conversations around the civil unrest our children currently see on the news and on their streets, by addressing the events in the contexts of media literacy, history, and citizenship. The resources include access to thoughtful lesson plans, archival Timeline entries, and video.
You may also be interested in Remembering Fallen Journalists, resources collected in honor of today’s World Press Freedom Day
Free registration is required for access to some of these resources.
Thanks Gary Price @infodocket for this lead!
