Learn360 tip - this date in history

Tip of the Month "This Day in History" and "Daily Almanac"
Here's a fun way to incorporate Learn360 in your class and improve usage! Simply type today's date (without the year - ie April 9) into the search bar, and the search results will show short video clips (roughly a minute or so in length) detailing the historical events from that day in history. (Play these clips as students enter the classroom in the morning to increase their focus and get them ready to learn!) Events are often American, but are relevant to North American culture.
