We assist educators in bringing to life in their classrooms the rich reservoir of primary sources from the library with innovative media and technology, while simultaneously developing lesson plans focused on achieving Common Core State Standards.
Why Use Primary Sources?
To Bring LIFE Into Your Classroom!
Imagine the enlivened learning experience you can create...
- Reading the actual letter a soldier wrote home after he survived the Battle of Gettysburg VS. reading the text book account of it
- Listening to Depression Era recordings performed by the original musicians VS. hearing a lecture describing the music
- Experiencing a historical documentary prepared using modern day mobile devices to allow students exciting digital storytelling with access to original artifacts of history VS. watching a slide show or viewing photos of those artifacts in their textbooks.
