2017 AASL National Conference

Close Reading with Historical Newspapers

Nov 11, 2017 2:00pm ‐ Nov 11, 2017 3:00pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $6.99
Members: $0.00


There is a wealth of information in historical newspapers, but it can be challenging for students to find and access the information on the page. This session will explore how students can find content in historical newspapers related to topics of study and how close reading and other historical analysis approaches can assist students in coming to an understanding of the text’s meaning in the newspaper and of the historical event being written about.
