Newspapers in Education

Each year, the Georgia History Festival‘s education initiatives center around a figure or topic in Georgia history. Along with public programs, classroom resources, training opportunities for teachers, and in-school programming, GHS also creates digital publications that explore these themes and are made available to students and educators through the GHS website and through partners like the Georgia Press Association.
