10am Session, RI Teacher Fest

Think Like a Historian

Join Geralyn Ducady, Director, Newell D. Goff Center for Education and Public Programs & Sarah Carr, Education & Program Manager at the Museum of Work & Culture for an interactive session in which they review strategies teachers can utilize in their classrooms to help students relate to historical themes through interaction with historical objects and primary sources. They will demonstrate how the use of primary sources and artifacts in teaching allows students to actively engage with history and learn to “think like historians,” use evidence in their arguments, think critically, and build 21st Century Skills.

Teachers should register at RITeacherFest.org.
