Culturally Relevant Pedagogy with Primary Sources

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

"The past has so much to teach us, and our students have so much to teach us. How do we intersect effective social studies instruction and culturally relevant learning in a way that honors students' cultural competence? Primary sources are great tools to help our learners understand history while reflecting on their own knowledge and experiences.

This workshop will intersect the tenets of Culturally Relevant Pedagogy (CRP) with inquiry-based learning. See CRP in action, with videos of students doing authentic historical work in the classroom, and participate in hands-on activities that share historical instruction through a culturally relevant lens. Dive into primary sources, and discuss ways to find sources that support both your teaching and your students' windows and mirrors. Leave with resources, ideas, and examples to support a culturally relevant classroom. We're going to do all the things, and we're going to do them in a way that won't make you fall asleep on a Sunday afternoon. "

(Note: This workshop is made possible with support from the Library of Congress. Thank you!)
