NOTE: THIS EVENT REQUIRES COMMITMENT TO THREE CONSECUTIVE SESSIONS: APRIL 3, 10, 17!
The new Common Core State Standards present a series of challenges to teachers. However, the Standards’ emphasis on an integrated model of literacy and the use of “informational text” is a tremendous opportunity for educators of every subject and grade level to make use of primary sources—the “raw materials of history”—in the classroom. In this multimedia presentation, Dr. David Bates of the Teaching with Primary Sources program at DePaul University, will use an array of Library materials to instruct participants in locating primary sources in a variety of differentiated media formats at the Library website, www.loc.gov. Additionally, he will explain how they can be used to achieve both content knowledge and curriculum alignment and offer practical suggestions for lesson and unit planning.
