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

Mark Bailey,

9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

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.
