Interpretive layer for students
I felt like a detective.
My
least
favorite thing was getting angry about sexism.
I'm more of a face-to-face learner and the documents are really like the closest you can get to that with history.
My
most
favorite thing was getting angry about sexism.
Archives EDUCATION

Primary sources -- letters, diaries, photographs -- don't contextualize themselves in the way most secondary sources do.

Archivists have this knowledge and endeavor to pass it on to students, teachers, and the general public.
Document Analysis:
The fundamental skill for working with archival primary sources.

Why build this project site?
Archives OUTREACH
Archives INTERPRETATION
& EDUCATION

Our work with K-12
Students & Teachers
Grant Project
Digital History Toolkit

unique incredible collectons that document the history of women over time and gives them a voice that's not easily available in a lot of places
-wanting to help students learn from and teachers teach how students do research
Why are we doing this?
Trend towards more instruction and education in the archives field.

Desire from teachers and students to go beyond the textbook.

Working with primary sources is valuable and novel for students (and many teachers).

Doing history
means engaging with "the stuff of history" -- it is the labwork necessary to grasp social studies & history.

We want more people to love history and understand how to use it!
