Course Description

A workshop designed to support teachers in their integration of GSE content standards, GSE literacy standards, and critical thinking skills necessary for success in the middle and high school ELA and Social Studies classrooms.



Class Notes

 

Are you considering how to successfully integrate the literacy and critical thinking skills into your curriculum?
Do you want to make your lessons more engaging and relevant to the diverse learners you teach each day?

 

Participate in the Georgia Historical Society’s (GHS) workshop Opening America’s Archives: Using Primary Sources in the Classroom to discover how primary sources can help you create engaging, authentic learning experiences that improve literacy and critical thinking skills without sacrificing subject-area content. The course will explore the value of using primary sources across disciplines and will introduce participants to the library and archival collections of the Georgia Historical Society, Library of Congress, and other repositories across Georgia and the country. Participants will also learn tips, tools, and techniques for engaging students in exploration and study of primary sources in the classroom with a focus on historical inquiry.

Topics covered will include:

- What are primary sources and why should I use them in the classroom?

- Where can I find primary sources?

- What are the best practices for searching online databases for primary sources?

- How do I design lessons and activities with primary sources?

Participants should bring a laptop or tablet for accessing digital archives.
