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 5th webinar in the series focuses on Hyde Hall.
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:
