Check out the JFK lesson I’ve posted at The New York Times.

The fiftieth anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination is coming up next week, and I’ll certainly be making additions to this list.

Here’s a start:

JFK in Photos is from The Atlantic.

Textbooks Reassess Kennedy, Putting Camelot Under Siege is from The New York Times.

5 Headlines That Would Have Been If JFK Lived is from ABC News.

JFK Assassination: A look back at the death of President John F. Kennedy 50 years ago is from CBS News.

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library is a treasure trove of accessible resources though, of course, it’s probably safe to say that they won’t be entirely objective. The three best resources there are:

A collection of many online interactives.

Their special multimedia site, JFK50.org.

The Legacy of President John F. Kennedy – 50 Years Later is an extensive collection from the PBS News Hour.

Lessons On American Presidents has one on President Kennedy for English Language Learners.

Killing Kennedy is an interactive from National Geographic comparing the lives of President Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald.

A Moment That Change Everything is a particularly impressive feature from The Washington Post.

John F. Kennedy’s assassination, 50 years later is from CBC News.

Teaching About J.F.K. With The New York Times is from The New York Times Learning Network.

Here are great resources for ELLs from Sean Banvilles site, Lessons On U.S. Presidents.




Eyewitness to History: An Interactive Map of the Kennedy Motorcade

Feel free to leave suggestions for other resources to include here.
