Teaching with Primary Sources: Using Historical Periodicals

Teaching with Primary Sources: Using Historical Periodicals

Jill Anderson, Humanities Instruction Librarian, is offering a “Teaching with Primary Sources: Using Historical Periodicals” workshop for faculty and graduate student instructors. This workshop will be held on Monday, April 8, 1pm to 3pm, in Classroom 2, Library North 2, on the Atlanta campus.

In this hands-on workshop, attendees will be the “students” for activities drawing on historical periodicals, including those in our subscription databases, print bound volumes, and several freely-available digitized magazines.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn to search in several of the GSU Library’s historical-periodicals databases
  • Consider the differences and relationships between points of access (GSU’s subscription databases vs. print vs. freely available online)
  • Consider how search strategies and results can help students begin to identify a given periodical’s ideological leanings and target audience
  • Brainstorm about ways to use these databases and/or this kind of searching in classroom instruction
  • Consider how librarians 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.

**Please note: this workshop is also being offered at the Clarkston campus on April 1. Click here for registration information for the April 1 workshop.
