d’Vinci and PBS NewsHour Awarded Library of Congress Grant for Phase 2 of Journalism in Action

PBS NewsHour Classroom and d’Vinci Interactive were recently awarded a second phase of a Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources grant for enhancements and support for the Journalism in Action educational website. 

Journalism in Action teaches middle and high school students about ten key moments in U.S. history through a journalist’s lens. Learners analyze primary sources such as newspaper articles, videos, and photography to determine what happened and how such culture-shifting events affected civic life. The ten key moment lessons are aligned to Common Core, C3 and ISTE standards and an extensive educator guide is also available.

For the second phase, the PBS NewsHour Classroom and d’Vinci team will be adding new primary-source journalism content, new features for elementary-age students, a “how-to-get-started” animated video, and a new timeline feature with student challenge. d’Vinci will also provide ongoing hosting, maintenance, and support for the online learning environment. 

Journalism in Action features fun, interactive activities, that inspire learners to inquire, ask questions, and make their own judgments using news articles, broadcast segments, political cartoons, and photographs curated from the databases of the Library of Congress. To learn more, visit
