Did you use any Newseum Education resources in your classroom this school year? If so, we’d love to share your story!

The Newseum Education website is filled with a plethora of ready-to-use lesson plans, timelines, primary sources, videos and much more to support  teachers and assist in student studies. Perhaps you turned to our Digital Classroom to incorporate “Women, Their Rights and Nothing Less” into Women’s History Month lessons, or used “Making a Change: The First Amendment and the Civil Rights Movement” materials during discussion on the 50th anniversary of the Selma, Ala., march.  Or maybe you used our American Civil War battlefield map poster while studying about the conflict.

No matter what or how you used our resources, we’d love to hear from you.  Your post may inspire or give ideas to other teachers.

Tell us your story in 750 words or less using the same format as our guest bloggers in March from the Orange County (Calif.) Department of Education. They structured their post about a virtual class into five parts: need, background, lesson plan, real story and results.

Submit your guest blog post to If your blog is selected for publication, we’ll send you four free tickets to the Newseum and a bag of resources. You’ll also have the opportunity to present at the Newseum’s Teacher Open House on Oct. 3, 2015.
