The PBS NewsHour has just unveiled a Journalism in Action site:

that uses the history of U.S. journalism to teach students media literacy, history and primary source research.

It has different sections for different eras/events (Civil War, Woman’s Suffrage, etc.) chockful of interactives, including editorial images to annotate.

There’s a lot in each unit, so I tend to doubt that many teachers would want their students to do everything, but it’s easy to pick-and-choose.

My only critique is that, instead of choosing to have the system many sites have which allow easy integration into Google Classroom or whatever Learning Management systems a school uses, they have students email their work to teachers or require educators to somehow upload the materials to their LMS.

I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Using Primary Sources.
