History | Teaching Teachers for the Future

History | Teaching Teachers for the Future | Teaching Primary sources | Scoop.it

The focus of these packages is on teaching historical content through the use of the discipline pedagogy that strengthens student's understanding of society past and present. Enhanced by digital technologies, students are encouraged to become active, inquiring and informed historians, using evidence collected from primary and secondary sources. You will gain an understanding of how to use specific educational technologies in the study of history and how to organise your classroom, as well as learn a range of teaching strategies and classroom management ideas. References to further material for your professional learning are also provided.

"Recently I took a class through the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Program.  Since I often write about historical topics, I wanted to learn more about the collections at the Library of Congress (LOC).  I was amazed at their massive online collections which contain documents, maps, newspapers, images, sound recordings, sheet music and much, much more.  While searching the LOC website I found myself getting lost in a fascinating world of primary sources—a real treat for a nonfiction author."
