Using Primary Sources in the Classroom and Library


Primary sources bring history to life. Join your colleagues for a hands-on BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) workshop focusing on professionally vetted online content resources that support local, state, and national standards. Participants will expand their digital toolbox with content resource websites and apps that provide access to primary sources. Explore the NEW Digital Public Library of America Primary Sources Sets. Connect with your local community through Historypin. Develop interactive activities using documents from the National Archives. And so much more.

After this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Enhance instruction with Primary Source Sets from Digital Public Library of America
  • Develop an interactive activity using documents from the National Archives
  • Teach information literacy skills integrating a variety of professionally vetted content resources
  • Deliver lessons that successfully infuse technology and engage students
