HNN Teacher's Edition: For High School and Grade School
If you're a teacher, we have a great resource for you!
HNN’s Teacher’s Edition is designed to help busy teachers build classes around topics in the news. With just a few minutes preparation, you'll be able to teach a class on current events, even if you haven't been in a position to follow the news closely.
We offer two new lesson plans every month during the academic year. The lesson plans we offer have been designed by veteran educators with long years of actual classroom experience.
Our package of materials features the lesson plan, audio-visual materials, and a backgrounder that lays out the basic facts teachers need to know.

George Mason University's History News Network is the web's leading site for news and history. Our nonpartisan mission is to help put current events into historical perspective. Given how public opinion is shaped today, whipsawed emotionally on talk shows this way and that in response to the egos of the guests, the desire for ratings by the hosts and the search for profits by media companies and sponsors, historians are especially needed now. They can help remind us of the superficiality of what-happens-today-is-all-that-counts journalism.
