Untold is a platform that provides educational resources to engage students in learning history. The site offers a free collection of animated videos that shed light on alternative historical perspectives that shed light on stories and events that do not normally appear in mainstream history textbooks. As they interact with these resources, students develop the critical thinking skills they need to help them evaluate and ask questions about the validity and veracity of information and news handled on a daily basis.
Materials are provided free of charge to teachers and students. They are divided into several series which include: Hidden Figures, Women and the American Story, Art the Change America, Things You Didn’t Know, America Changed Speeches, America Explained, and more. Untold “works with a growing list of museums, foundations and historical societies. These partners bring skills, unique insights, amazing resource materials and funding. And they share our passion for using video to connect young audiences to history.”
