Primary Sources: Workshops in American History

Twelve high school teachers explore the use of primary source documents in the research and interpretation of American history. The programs feature informal lectures by prominent historians on pivotal events from the settlement of Jamestown to the Korean conflict and the Cold War. The teachers are led in discussions, debates, interviews, and role-playing as they investigate the original documents that “transmit the voices of America’s past.” Teachers will find the activities in this workshop can be adapted and used in their own classrooms.
