Random Thoughts: Change, Primary Sources & Other Stuff

The class was what I needed to help me get focused for school!

Posted on: August 17, 2009

Primary Sources, Where have you been? Why have I never used primary sources?  I didn’t use them because I didn’t know where to find the resources. I never considered all of the possibilities.

Primary sources are all around us and accessible to all of us through vast digital collections.   Each time I engage with students in Teaching Information Literacy with Primary Sources I learn and am inspired by the wonderful and creative ideas students share.

Learn how to locate authentic digital primary sources in multiple formats to enhance your curriculum. Develop age appropriate learning activities that promote higher level questioning and critical thinking skills while adding excitement to student learning through engaging activities. The course is especially helpful for teachers of AP classes, teachers addressing state and national standards requiring the use of primary sources, and teachers working with National History Day activities. Materials fromTPS Direct, the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources professional development program, will be incorporated in the class.


The next class begins Sept 21; I’d love to have  you join us in the University of Wisconsin-Stout Online Professional Development Program.
