For centuries newspapers were the key source for breaking news. "Extra" editions were printed, often several times a day, to bring readers expanded coverage of stories as they developed. According to Washington Post columnist John Kelly, "extra" was used not as a synonym for "additional," but as a form of the word "extraordinary." It indicated extraordinary news.
Oklahoma Humanities Extra! is your source for extraordinary information beyond what you read in our magazine. You'll find author-generated questions for discussion and suggested sources for further reading and inquiry. EXTRA! materials are great for generating community conversation and for getting students to think critically about issues and ideas -- beyond the classroom.
