Two States. Eight Textbooks. Two American Stories. is a new New York Times interactive comparing textbooks used in California and in Texas, and how they talk about the same topics.

There are a number of similar resources in The Best Tools To Help Develop Global Media Literacy, but those compare perspectives in different countries.  This Times piece is particularly interesting because it compares them across states.

I use the international comparisons when we learn about history in my IB Theory of Knowledge classes.

This new domestic comparison will be an important addition.

In addition to adding it to the the Global Media Literacy “Best” list, I’m also putting it on The Best Websites For Teaching & Learning About U.S. History one.
