Teaching with Primary Resources Workshop

In this one-day workshop, K-12 educators better understand, identify and use primary resources from the digital archives of the Library of Congress in their classrooms. Time is allocated to have teachers identify sources relating to their content areas, practice using various analysis tools and more. Time will also be spent exploring the primary sources available at the Chester County Historical Society, including their vast collection of artifacts, photographs and printed material.  This is an excellent in-service training for educators mentoring students in the National History Day competition.  Participants should bring your own internet accessible device (laptop preferred). Lunch is provided.  Act 48 credit available. Pre-registration is through the Intermediate Unit at http://www.cciu.org/Page/1832
