As part of the Inquiry in the Upper Midwest grant project, we have produced webinars to help teachers use primary sources, inquiry strategies, and culturally relevant pedagogy in the classroom. Watch this page, Facebook, Twitter, or subscribe to the History Education e-Newsletter for webinar updates.
Using Primary Sources
Jessica Ellison from the Minnesota Historical Society describes why we should use primary sources in the classroom, and provides some tips on how to use them effectively with students.
Geography educator Jess Winkelaar shares a tool for analyzing maps, and models how to use that with three historic maps related to immigration.
Analyzing Sound Recordings
Kate Stower from the Minnesota Historical Society shares sound recordings selected from the Library of Congress and models primary source analysis of the song “Don’t Bite the Hand That’s Feeding You.”
