Abraham Lincoln's Crossroads is an educational game based on the traveling exhibition Lincoln: The Constitution & the Civil War, which debuted at the National Constitution Center in June 2005.
The online game is intended for advanced middle- and high-school students. It invites them to learn about Lincoln's leadership by exploring the political choices he made. An animated Lincoln introduces a situation, asks for advice and prompts players to decide the issue for themselves, before learning the actual outcome. At the end of the game, players discover how frequently they predicted Lincoln's actions. A Resources Page keyed to each chapter provides links to relevant Websites on Lincoln and the Civil War, permitting students to explore issues in more depth.

The Dangers, Values of Teen Literature
Rating
0.0 stars

"The Dangers, Values of Dark Teen Lit" is the title of a debate hosted by NPR's "Tell Me More" podcast host, Michel Martin. The discussion features Meghan Cox Gurdon (Wall Street Journal writer), Christopher John Farley (a Wall Street Journal writer and children's author), Patricia McCormick (young adult author), and Candice Mack (young adult librarian). The participants debate the appropriateness of the content in today's young adult literature and the darkness of the stories our nation's teens are reading as they seek to answer the question "Is young adult literature too dark?" This resource also links to a provocative Wall Street Journal article by Meghan Cox Gurdon and to the several responses to Cox Gurdon's thought-provoking work, including an article by Sherman Alexie. Please note: the mature content in young adult literature is discussed.

This resource will enable students to read multiple perspectives on a single topic, to seek out each author's opinion and the evidence used to support that opinion, and to evaluate the different arguments presented. Please note: This is a primary text resource. Guidelines for implementation in the classroom can be found in the "Guidance for Teachers in Using this Resource" section.
