Teaching with Primary Sources Instructor Workshop: Using Sources to Build Narratives

WSB radio bannerOn Monday, April 29, Kevin Fleming, Popular Music and Culture Archivist and Jill Anderson, Humanities Instruction Librarian, are offering a “Teaching with Primary Sources: Using Sources to Build Narratives” workshop for faculty and graduate student instructors.

This is a hands-on workshop where attendees will be our “students” for an exercise involving materials from Special Collections & Archives’ radio broadcasting collections—with plenty of time for discussion and brainstorming for how you might incorporate these and related materials into your own teaching!

This workshop will be held on Monday, April 29, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm, in the Colloquium Room, Library South 8, on the Atlanta campus.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn about unique materials held in GSU’s Special Collections and Archives
  • Consider how primary source materials can be the starting points for all kinds of stories
  • Experience first-hand the opportunity to create narratives – historical, or not — from unfamiliar primary sources
  • Brainstorm about ways to incorporate this narrative-building (or other uses of primary sources) into your classroom instruction
  • Consider how librarians and archivists can partner with you to design creative, effective instruction using primary sources and other library resources.

Register for this workshop here.

Please contact Jill Anderson or Kevin Fleming with questions about these workshops, or with other questions about using primary sources in your instruction.

Come be our “students” and to learn more!
