Teacher Workshop – Part 4 Using the Library of Congress Archives in Student Research and Historical Argumentation

On October 27 and November 3, 4:30-6:30 p.m., we will have an amazing virtual two-part workshop with Lynne O’Hara from National History Day. This training is based on the Guide to Student Research and Historical Argumentation, a publication co-produced by National History Day and the Library of Congress. Teachers will engage in active learning strategies designed to guide their students through the research process and develop a historical argument backed by evidence. Teachers will leave with materials adapted for their classroom, copies of the guidebook, and a plan for implementation in the 2021-2022 academic year.

on November 10 and 17, also starting at 4:30 p.m., will be another set of virtual workshops. November 10 will feature the State Archives and the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society. November 17 will feature the Rhode Island Historical Society and the Tomaquag Museum. We will showcase primary sources in these archives, how students can access the physical materials, what is available online or virtually in other ways, and other secondary resources that students can incorporate in their research and final projects.

This is for teachers of grades 6-12 who participate or are considering their participation in National History Day!

Registration is required. Follow this link!

*This project is sponsored in part by the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Eastern Region Program, coordinated by Waynesburg University.”
