The millions of pages of digitized primary sources available online from the Library of Congress offer almost unlimited possibilities, but identifying the right choices for your students can be challenging and time-consuming. On April 14, at 4 pm, ET, join staff from the Library for a free webinar outlining strategies and thinking processes for selecting primary sources to engage students and deepen content knowledge.
Discuss criteria for selecting and using primary sources in instruction, including:
- Point of view
- Historical context
The webinar will highlight strategies drawn from our experiences preparing and delivering teacher workshops. Participants will be invited to discuss ways to select sources representing multiple perspectives and addressing difficult topics. Participants will be invited to apply select strategies to a set of primary sources, considering both the needs of their students, and when and how they’ll use the items.
