In celebration of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on Feb. 12, we are pleased to present this Newspapers in Education tab.
February 2009 was the Bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s birth. The Washington Times and the NIE Institute, along with the History Channel, produced this 15-page Newspapers in Education tab on the life of Lincoln, his challenges and his victories. Primary source material from his major speeches, the Gettysburg Address, 1st & 2nd inaugurations, and the Emancipation Proclamation, are provided. Newspaper activities are included too.
