This content resource is featured on the University of Missouri-Kansas Citys website and consists of information revolving around the trial of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. The site includes an account of the trial, a chronology, a diagram of spy ring, a trail transcript, and images. The website can be both a student and teacher resource. The information on this page is available to be copied and pasted into a separate document should a teacher wish to distribute the information to their students,. The site is however, student friendly, as the links do not lead to excessive amounts of information; teachers should still give explicit directions to which links their students should view, as there are many options and the site does contain a great deal of content.
