Headline History August 28, 2007

Posted by admin in : History , trackback

Headline History is a super free site by Northcliffe Electronic Publishing and funded by Culture Online. Students can explore British History through ‘historical’ newspapers. The time periods available are the Romans, the Tudors, the Victorians and World War 2. Each newspaper is packed full of articles and information about the time. Students can also write their own articles using the interviews and quotes on the site. The interviews are presented as videos so it’s like talking to the historical characters directly! The creators of the site also arrange ‘hot seat chats’ where students can log in to talk to historical characters. Totally brilliant! Check it out now. šŸ™‚

[I’d not come across this site before but it was mentioned in a discussion on the Education Media website that I linked to last week. Thanks to Chris for flagging it up.]
