Teaching Current Issues with Trusted Resources

Internet Research Icon

I'm often asked about resources for current issues.  I look for resources from quality, trusted partners and emphasize the use of primary sources in the classroom.  Tags are used to help sort items; you can filter by each tag by using the tool below.  

For more information on using primary sources in social studies, take a look at the Social Studies Disciplinary Literacy page.
