Free Workshop on Using Primary Documents for Pre-Service and Qualified Teachers!
Denshō, the Japanese American Legacy Project, invites qualified and pre-service teachers to a free workshop April 20 from 10 AM to 3 PM. “Learn how to access and use primary source materials to develop analysis and reasoning skills.” The World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans will be the subject used as the basis of these activities. This topic is excellent in supporting historical awareness, inclusiveness and diversity, and civil rights while developing information literacy and thinking skills. Targeting middle school and high school humanities teachers, this program is also suitable for those who are teaching or plan to teach upper elementary school and lower level college students. Brooks Library is proud to host this opportunity for teachers, education instructors, and education students. Lunch and “a CD including lesson ideas aligned to state and Common Core standards, primary source materials, tips, and tools” will be provided to participants.
