As world events continue to move at breakneck speed, teachers, students and all members of the BLS community are looking for access to news and tools to help us evaluate what we read, watch and hear. Following the launch of the 8th grade current events project, the Keefe Library has a new guide to help! You can access it here or by going to the Keefe Library>Class Guides and looking under History. These resources were created and collected for students and teachers at all grade levels.

Here's what you'll find under the three tabs:


  • Useful charts, graphics, handouts: the CRAAP test, Vanessa Otero's chart on partisan bias in the news, a media vocabulary guide
  • Keefe Library video: Why is it news?
  • News sources: links to the Boston Globe, the New York Times, Pressreader and RB Digital (national newspapers and news magazines)


  • Infographic on "fake news"
  • Links to fact-checking resources

For teachers

  • Links to the Keefe Library's suggestions for resources for lesson planning

As always, use these resources in your own lessons or reach out for collaborative planning and teaching.
