One Teacher Speaks to the Power of Our Current Events Collection

Current events come along fast—Facing History gives educators what they need when they need it to reflect on world events with care.

Our wide range of educator resources includes a wealth of highly adaptable materials, with a particular focus for use in history and English Language Arts (ELA) classes.

One of Facing History’s most popular resource sets is our Current Events Collection. When breaking news or major events happen, teachers often have little to no time to prepare to have meaningful discussions with students or adapt their lesson plans to integrate breaking news.
