Mass Moments

Mass Moments logoMass Moments, is an electronic almanac of Massachusetts History. Every day, users find a different story about events and people from three centuries of Massachusetts history.

Your project carries this email-a-day paradigm to a new level of sophistication. The richness and depth of the moments that you choose to document gives me a two-minute history lesson every morning even before I read the New York Times.— M.S., Mass Moment subscriber
Teachers use it to enhance the curriculum in history and social science, English and language arts, and other subjects. In addition to streaming audio and the text of the minute-long spot, every story on the website has a background essay, primary source document, image(s), and links to both virtual and “real” resources. An interactive timeline and map provides historical and geographic context, and a message board offers the opportunity for visitors to post comments, corrections, or questions.

You can sign up to receive Mass Moments daily via email. Follow daily Mass Moments on Facebook. Request Mass Moments cards to distribute or display.
