In light of yesterday’s tragic shooting in Arizona, I thought I’d bring together a short list of potentially useful sites.
Here are my choices for The Best Resources For Teaching About The Arizona Shooting:
There’s no question the best resources, including lesson ideas, have been brought together by the New York Times Learning Network. They have Ways to Teach About the Arizona Shootings (which they continue to update, so you should check it regularly) and Will the Arizona Shootings Change Our Political Culture?
The Wall Street Journal has an interactive titled Political Targets.
The Associated Press has an interactive on the shooting.
The Washington Post has an interactive.
I’m also very impressed with a blog post by Martha Infante, a Los Angeles teacher, titled Words Matter.
Assassins and American History also comes from The New York Times.
Mourning The Victims of The Arizona Shooting is a TIME Magazine slideshow.
Gabrielle Giffords’s injury explained is an interactive from The Guardian.
Moment of silence for Arizona shooting victims is a series of photos from The Sacramento Bee.
Messages For The Tucson Shooting Victims is a TIME Magazine slideshow.
Relatives, friends remember 6 slain in Tucson is a slideshow on some of the victims — from CNN.
Here is a video of President Obama’s speech at the Tucson Memorial Service — from MSNBC.
Here is the text of his speech.
MSNBC also has several other multimedia features.
The New York Times has an exceptional interactive video of the President’s speech with the text.
The Times has also published another interactive feature showing other examples when President’s have had to “console a nation” after a tragedy.
A Brief History of American Assassination Attempts is a TIME Magazine slideshow.
Additional suggestions are welcome.
