Course Name:
Integrating Inquiry, Primary Sources and Iowa History into K-12 Classroom

Program Description:
Explore the best practices for integrating inquiry and primary sources into your K-12 classrooms. Participants will receive exclusive access to the museum’s primary sources-both archives and collection objects-as well as learn from teacher facilitators who will model best practices for using primary sources and inquiry. Participants will walk away with resources and lesson plans to implement in their classrooms.

Project Description:
Using what is learned about integrating inquiry and primary sources, participants will use either the compelling question or one supporting question from any State Historical Society of Iowa’s Primary Source Sets and select at least three primary sources that relate to the compelling or supporting question. The primary sources can be from the Primary Source Sets, the Library of Congress, National Archives or a major university archive. Participants will create a single-day or multi-day lesson plan utilizing the compelling or supporting question, all of the selected primary sources and inquiry.

This two-day seminar is held for K-12 Teachers and there is no fee to participate! You just need to register here so you are able to receive LR credit and we are able to communicate with you once the date gets closer.

A small stipend will be paid to each participant who successfully completes the training with a grade B or higher.

Lunch is provided both days. Closer to the date, the instructors will gather lunch preferences from attendees.

Course Requirements:

  • LR Credit seekers must attend both days of the class, participate and develop a complete lesson plan.

This class is available for License Renewal credit.
