The day that classes start, a professor asks that newspaper photographs of the Kent
State shooting in 1969 be scanned from a microfilm copy of the newspaper and put up on the
web for her U.S. History class. Only students in the class have access to the web site and the
professor has not taught the class before.
Example 2: Citizen King
