EDUCATOR PD WORKSHOPS: TEACHING WITH PRIMARY SOURCES
Are you tired of annotating and DBQ booklets? Do you want to turn your classroom into an investigative environment that is accessible to all students? Look no further! In this session, participants will explore the meaning of ‘text’ and its link to primary sources. Educators will learn about several engaging new tools and strategies to add to their teacher toolbox that we have used in our own classroom. Participants will also have the opportunity to work on recreating an old lesson with one of their new tools, as well as reflect on their professional experience with primary sources thus far. Accessible for the digital native or the digital novice, we believe there is something here for everyone.
