History Nerdfest 2016 Day Three: Teaching with Primary Sources & Emerging Technologies

I’m still trying to put together all of the stuff from last weekend. There’s been so much goodness, it’s hard to keep up.

So today just a quick post highlighting one graphic organizer and a couple of links from Scott Waring and Cheryl Torrez. They’ve put together a nice site that pulls a bunch of ideas and resources into one place.

Start with the Teaching History tab to explore the Historical Process and some ideas for teaching with primary sources. You’ll find a ton of tech tools that can be integrated into social studies instruction on the Emerging Technologies tab and a great list of web links under Resources.

Scott and Cheryl also shared a new way for students that I haven’t seen before that they call the SOURCES framework.

Get an idea of what it can look like if a student would use the SOURCES framework to analyze the Lewis and Clark expedition with one of their examples. While Library of Congress or National Archives analysis worksheets are perfect for helping students make sense of single documents, SOURCES seems like a great way to look at broader themes and collections of evidence.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.
