Gilder Lehrman Institute/New York State Council for the Social Studies Webinar:Bringing in Diverse Perspectives when Taking a Look at History (K-12)
Join the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and the New York State Council for the Social Studies for a special program on Bringing in Diverse Perspectives when Taking a Look at History. Following an introduction to the Institute (which is the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to K–12 history education while also serving the general public) and fall programming for students, teachers, and the community, this 90-minute session will focus on K-12 resources and strategies for integrating primary sources from diverse perspectives when discussing key concepts in American history. This session will particularly align with the civic literacy DBQ component of the US History Regents exam, though the strategies discussed will connect with social studies and English Language Arts curricula at all grade levels.
Participants will receive 1.5 hours of CTLE credit (certificates and letters of completion to come after the session from the Gilder Lehrman Institute) along with a digital packet of Teaching Literacy through History™ lesson plans, along with an electronic copy of Teaching With Documents: The Twentieth Century (geared toward grades 6-12) and/or Teaching With Documents: Colonial America to Reconstruction (geared toward grades 4-8).
