Subject: History Audience: All

Mass Moments is an electronic almanac of Massachusetts History. Every day, radio and podcast listeners, as well as Internet users, get the opportunity to hear or read a new story about events and people from three centuries of Massachusetts history. Teachers often use the almanac to enhance their 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 added to the almanac website has an accompanying background essay, primary source document, image, and collection of 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.
