Diverse Stories Using Primary Sources & Artifacts


Elizabeth Gardner


How do you make history more inclusive and relevant to today’s students? We'll discuss using the unique power of artifacts and primary sources to not only bring history to life, but to diversify and enrich it, including the voices and experiences of people whose stories have not been as widely told. We'll showcase examples from an innovative collection of digital learning resources on PBS LearningMedia, and touch on ideas for integrating other artifacts and primary sources into curriculum.
