Introduction

Direction: Read below and use the links in highlighted text to write summary info on your handout provided.

During the 1990's, a Digital Revolution was helping to bring the world into American's homes in way not yet experienced before.  With 24 hour a day news channels debuting on cable tv, dot.com businesses, the wonder of email and early forms of social media networking, Americans began to see the news and share the news in ways never thought possible.     Was the world getting crazier? Or were we just seeing the world in the 1990's through a different lens?  
Your task today will be to use headphones to watch summaries of some of the major news stories of the 1990's, and answer the questions on the handout provided, turn this in by the end of class today.
