Historical Newspapers in the Classroom
Presenter: Margaret Fredericksen, TPS SIUE
This is a one-day workshop (6-hour) to introduce the use of historical newspapers from the Library of Congress as primary source informational texts and strategies in using newspapers across the curriculum. Participants will be guided through a hands-on exploration of Chronicling America, a digital collection of U.S. newspapers published from 1836-1922. Participants will also explore the Library's Teacher Resources, which include lessons and activities that incorporate other formats of primary sources such as documents, manuscripts, photographs, film, music, art, and more. All certified educators are welcome.
