Inquiry-based learning through Primary Sources
Cultivate a classroom of inquiry-based learning through the practice of teaching with primary sources. Join Teaching with Primary Sources-MHU to explore various strategies for engaging students through the exploration of primary sources in your classroom for all content areas. In this session we will study the “Impact of the Railroad on Southern Appalachia” as best practices are modeled for 6-12 students.
