Description

Archives Connect: Developing an Educational Outreach Initiative for Your Archive


Archives and special collections are poised to play a more significant and instrumental role in student achievement since the implementation of the Common Core standards. With a particular emphasis on 21st Century learning skills, including the ability to think critically, communicate clearly, and collaborate with peers to create high quality, scholarly work, these standards present an opportunity for archives to share their expertise with all educators and learners.

This workshop models how participants can implement school outreach initiatives using the special collections and archives at their institutions, including how to utilize archival collections to meet Common Core Standards, create lesson plans, and engage students and teachers in history research to support a variety of academic disciplines.

This workshop is for anyone who is interested in creating a program at their library or archive; no prior work in educational programming is required.

Registration includes a 120-page workshop booklet.


What to bring:

  • Notetaking materials
