Find out what happened on This Day in History

  • Jun 27, 2014


We’re always on the lookout for cool new educational resources to recommend, and thanks to the folks at our DIRECTV SCHOOL CHOICE networks we never seem to run out of options. Right now we’d like to call your attention to This Day in History, an outstanding multi-media site from History Channel (ch. 269) that goes well beyond the trivia its name suggests to deliver in-depth feature articles, videos and more.

You can use it as a basis for homework assignments; to spur conversation at the beginning of each class; or even just for your own edification. The service is free to all, and limited only to the extent of your creativity.

So, on this day in history, check out This Day in History.
