Voices of World War I
CRIS Radio has teamed up with the Connecticut State Library to record incredible documents of World War I. As we approach the 100th anniversary of America's involvement, your students will be able to listen to the words of Connecticut's men who fought in Europe. Diaries, personal accounts and newspapers bring the Great War to life, as men share their memories of what they universally call "hell". To find out more and access the recordings, click HERE.
The new CRISKids Search Engine/Database may be found HERE. You can scroll through the entire library, or search for items your school submitted, by an author, title and more. You can also sort your results by several fields, by clicking on the light grey arrows by the field's name.
When you enter the database page, it first will show you the titles from CRISKids. If you would like to access the materials in CRIS en Espanõl or CRIS Radio (Courant, Time Magazine et al.), then click on either of the icons on the left.
By clicking on the title of the recording, you are taken to the recording's page and can play and control the playback from the built-in player.
Don't look for the CRISKids magazines in the search engine/database. Due to the technology that we used to create the database for the materials you submit, we had to use another section for the magazines. The magazines may be found HERE.
