Are You Enjoying the Roosevelts? There's a Ken Burns App!

If you are enjoying watching The Roosevelts on PBS this week, you may be interested in the new Ken Burns App.  I just read this review from the "Touch and Go" column of School Library Journal.  It's essentially a timeline of American history, populated with short clips from all of his documentaries. It's organized both chronologically and thematically. What a gift to middle and high school social studies, humanities, and ELA teachers who need those "just right" clips for mini-lessons to initiate conversation or to complicate dialogue in class. You can order it on iTunes
