This class applies an inquiry-learning model using primary sources available through the Library of Congress website to develop a National History Day project.  The LOC has digitized over 37 million primary sources to bring learners the raw materials of U.S. society and culture spanning more than 200 years.  Crossing multiple disciplinary areas, these sources inspire curiosity, prompt interesting questions, and support investigations of these questions—thereby creating conditions that promote deeper thinking and understanding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Learn:

  • The benefits of --and how to-- incorporate History Day in your classroom
  • How to navigate and use the Library of Congress digital primary source collections in instruction
  • How to create basic inquiry-based learning experiences
  • How to include Colorado history topics in your History Day instruction and in your classroom

Primary Source-based Learning Activity Design an activity utilizing primary sources from the Library of Congress using one or more of the inquiry based strategies/techniques learned in this workshop (e.g. RQI, Multiple Perspectives, etc.)
