Two new classroom activities have been added to the Outreach page! Today we have: “To Strike or Not to Strike,” a critical thinking and group decision-making activity about whether a labor union ought to strike during World War II; and “And Now, the News!,” a perspective-taking and creative acting activity about identifying communication biases, with a focus on African American participation in the 1939 World’s Fair. Both of these activities use historical Ohio newspapers from Chronicling America to provide examples that focus discussion. If you like these activities or use them in your classroom, let us know by emailing our staff. Happy learning!
