And Justice for all: Using Primary Source Materials to bring a Social Justice Perspective in your classroom.

Mark Bailey, Pacific University

Berglund 019

An exciting new array of digital primary source materials allows your students an intimate glimpse into history. Accessing these artifacts encourages students to develop a more personal connection to the issues and people that define our past, and allows historically marginalized voices to speak to issues of justice and the human condition. I will provide an extensive set of links to these materials and will demonstrate a technique to bring history alive by interviewing historical figures. Examples will be provided from the work of a range of elementary and graduate students.
