New York News Publishers' Association, Newspaper in Education (NYNPA/ NIE);

Goals - to encourage and support the use of newspapers, in print or online, as tools for promoting literacy and as teaching resources. NYNPA/ NIE support the use of newspapers in schools, summer reading programs, adult education, and literacy programs. The program is based on the belief that newpaper readerhip is essential to the formation of citizenship.

NYNPA/ NIE materials are included on this site because newspapers, current and historic, are PRIMARY DOCUMENTS - source materials that are closest to the person, information, period, or idea being studied. The resources offered here are to enhance educational goals in the classroom.

Goals - Consource is a free, online library of U.S. Constitutional history. The mission of ConSource is to increase knowledge, facilitate research, and encourage discussion of the U.S. Constitution by providing free access to the documentary history of its creation, ratification and amendment, and by developing web-based tools that enable “We the People” to interact with Constitutional history.

Consource digitizes and cross-references thousands of source documents written by individuals who drafted, ratified, and influenced the creation of the U.S. Constitution and its Amendments. It offers a Constitutional Index which breaks down the U.S. Constitution by Section, Amendment, and Clause. It also contains other topics and themes for users to research and learn from. Consource also offers programs and events that make use of Constitutional sources.

This is a great resource for students, teachers, judges, legislators, law professionals, scholars, and anyone doing research.
