Teaching with Primary Sources: Using Sources to Build Narratives

Teaching with Primary Sources: Using Sources to Build Narratives

Kevin Fleming, Popular Music and Culture Archivist, and Jill Anderson, Humanities Instruction Librarian, are offering this “Teaching with Primary Sources: Using Sources to Build Narratives” workshop for faculty and graduate student instructors. This workshop will be held on Monday, April 29, 1pm to 3pm, in the Colloquium Room, Library South 8, on the Atlanta campus.

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.

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.

“Teaching with Primary Sources” is an ongoing series of workshops designed to introduce faculty and graduate student instructors to creative strategies for incorporating a range of primary sources, including but not limited to archival, digital, and/or subscription primary sources, into classroom instruction.

Come be our "students" to learn more!
