Registration is closed

Archives are posed to play a more significant and instrumental role in student achievement since the implementation of Common Core. Its emphasis on 21st Century learning skills, including the ability to think critically, communicate clearly, collaborate with peers and create high quality, scholarly work presents timely opportunities for archives to share their expertise with all educators and learners. 

This workshop uses Brooklyn Connections, the education division of the Brooklyn Public Library’s local history archive, the Brooklyn Collection, as a case-study to teach participants how to implement school outreach initiatives at their institutions. Utilize archival collections to meet Common Core Standards, create lesson plans and engage students’ and teachers’ interest in local history. Learn pedagogical terminology and practical strategies for establishing meaningful and ongoing school partnerships. Participants will leave the workshop with adaptable resources to inform the creation or expansion of educational initiatives at their home institutions.

Instructors: Kaitlin Holt and Deenah Shutzer, Brooklyn Public Library; third instructor to be determined

Registration is $50 per person. The registration deadline is October 5, 2016.
