Awesome Stories announces its new story-based digital teaching and learning platform.
For each of its nearly 800 stories, Awesome Stories provides the time and place context—videos, original documents, images or audios. For the “Red Tails” film, actual footage of the Tuskegee airmen, the transcript of the curriculum studied by the first black woman pilot in France (American Bessie Coleman), the physics of flight, plane engineering, politics of the day, importance in the war effort, and more, are provided. Each class, subject, or grade uses the narrative guides and primary sources surrounding each story to match its own curriculum and to fuel their own exploration, lessons, projects, and research.
