General
How I Use It
I use it to supplement current and historical events. The stories provided help students to "see" history before their eyes. I use this site mostly for on line presentations to the class. I'm not sure if it is applicable to individual learning; more whole-class application.
My Take
I appreciate the great amount of topic areas that can be researched through this site. This site connects articles, videos, and audio recordings with subjects under research. Kids are very engaged with presentations. I find it a little difficult to navigate the site for specific items. Many times, random fields show up with some distnat connection to the site - frustrating. Would like to see lesson plans aligned with topics.
