Online Resources for Media-Rich Instruction
I subscribe to the Library of Congress' photostream on flickr. Great source for some really cool and sometimes historic photos. Above is a photo of Suffrage hikers on the way to Washington and below a photo of Rosalie Jones, Ida Craft and other suffrage hikers. The widespread availability of these and other photos is a result of this ongoing project between Flickr and The Library of Congress. If you combine photos like these with historical archives from the New York Times, such as this - Suffrage Hikers Undaunted By Cold (from the February 13th, 1913 NY Times - WOW!) and even photos from Life Magazine now hosted by Google, you could create some really rich instructional materials. Lastly, here is a screenshot from the NY Times archive.
