A compelling primary source can bring a bit of mystery or intrigue into an elementary classroom. Even in kindergarten, using an analysis process to look at primary sources can lead to student engagement, critical thinking, and empowered learning. Tom Bober, elementary school librarian and author, shares insights on the benefits of primary source analysis to student thinking and learning along with steps and strategies to unleash them in the classroom or library.

Join us to:
  • Understand how to select compelling primary sources to support student learning
  • Explore the role teachers play in primary source analysis to empower students' engagement and learning
  • Experience primary source analysis strategies that can be used with elementary students
