Old News in the Classroom

The News Archive Partner Program provides a way for Google and publishers and
repositories to partner together and make historical newspaper archives discoverable
online. As part of Google News, the News archive search function provides an easy way
to search and explore historical archives.


I’ve used this feature a couple of times in the past week with my 8th graders… they did seem to really enjoy seeing historical newspapers presented this way.

I remember being so excited to find a copy of a “moon landing” paper from ’69 at an antique shop when I was high school, so I had to buy it.

Funny how some things never change.

Anyway, this is a great resource for teachers in all areas/grade levels.
