Tennessee History Day

Teaching with Primary Sources-MTSU

These workshops are a joint presentation of the Tennessee Historical Society and Teaching with Primary Sources–MTSU, which is administered by the Center for Historic Preservation. Participants are introduced to Tennessee History Day, a year-long, project-based curriculum that engages students in grades 6–12 in the process of discovery and interpretation of historical topics. Participants are also exposed to the Library of Congress’ Teaching with Primary Sources program, which helps teachers use the rich reservoir of digitized primary source materials to design challenging, high-quality instruction. Workshop participants will focus on skill building for project-based learning. See below for location and session details.

Participating educators will receive a $40 stipend and curriculum materials. Lunch will be provided. Directions to meeting location and details will be sent to the email provided in registration. We look forward to seeing you at our workshops!
