Guides to timeless stories, complete with chapters covering elements of the story context and an array of primary sources in various media, give the richest sense of why and how the story is important, instructive and moving.
Chapters present elements of the underlying context for stories and include videos, images, documents and audio resources to bring the story into sharp focus.
These short stories, built around a media image or video, deliver a trenchant slice of knowledge about a person, place, event or achievement.
Developed by master teachers, based on standards, tasks for students are provided for each story for quick engagement with the stories on a deeper, reflective, critical-thinking level.
Moving pictures elucidate, elaborate and enliven topics, telling stories on their own or in concert with Stories, Chapters or MiniStories.
Pictures convey what words cannot and together images and text deliver the richest understanding.
The voice of creators, or subjects of stories, come to us through audio files of radio interviews, speeches and personal recordings.
