Teaching with Primary Sources
Thu, October 6, 2011 • 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM • ESC XVIII, Midland
This hands-on training workshop will discuss the use and analysis of primary documents—reading for bias, analyzing photographs and drawings, etc.—and introduce attendees to the Library of Congress Web site and guide them through accessing the materials that will be used. The second portion of the workshop will involve content training, introducing selected documents on world studies themes (selected by Hemispheres), and familiarizing attendees with the contextualization materials and how to incorporate them into the classroom.
Most appropriate for World Cultures, World Geography, and World History teachers.
