Audience: School librarians; Social Studies Teachers; Other Librarians and Cultural Organizations wanting to learn more about the Primary Partners Program
Equipment Required: Internet; ability to use conferencing software
Description: Are you interesting in learning more about the cultural organizations in the SCRLC region that have primary resources that could benefit teachers and students alike? Under the auspices of a Teaching with Primary Sources grant from the Library of Congress via Waynesburg University, SCRLC is offering a webinar series highlighting the region's cultural organizations and their primary sources. Learn about the collections and opportunities from the convenience of your desk and at a time that does not conflict with the school day! Tour the updated History Unbound LibGuide, too! The third webinar in the series focuses on the Binghamton University Archives.
SCRLC received an 18-month grant, Primary Partners: Supporting Inquiry-Based Instruction through Collaboration to facilitate new partnerships among local social studies teachers, librarians, and cultural organization educators and to create mini-inquiries using Library of Congress Primary Sets, New York Heritage collections, and secondary/tertiary sources. Primary Partners targets grades 4, 7, 8, and 11, with a focus on Women's suffrage, the Erie Canal, and the Civil War, though other related aspects are included (e.g., temperance, civil rights).
In August, five cultural organizations and sixteen social studies/librarian participants met in Binghamton for a two-day workshop to create mini-inquiries and learn more about local/regional collections. SCRLC covers a big region-14 counties and 10,000 square miles; therefore, we have invited additional cultural organizations to discuss their collections and primary sources via webinars-and how a class, student, or teacher can reach out to them.
Objectives- by the end of the webinar you will know:
