Teaching with Primary Sources Grant Participation Opportunity

SCRLC is the recipient of a grant called Primary Partners (P2): Supporting Inquiry-Based Instruction through Collaboration. Participants will be asked to write mini-inquiries/lessons using primary sources. We're looking for: 

  • social studies teacher/librarian pairs (a trio is OK, too); each participant will receive $250 for their time and expertise. It's a great way for your librarians and teachers to spend two days this summer!
  • cultural organization educators. Each participant will also receive $250 for their time and expertise. We heard from a couple of you in a survey that was sent out toward the end of 2016 and would like a few more participants.

Deadline to apply: May 25, 2017

More information and details available here.

Their work was compiled and shared via LibGuides, accessible at
