Teaching History By Using Primary Resources

This grant will serve 8th and 11th grade teachers. These teachers will gain: knowledge of the importance and analysis of primary resource documents; the uses of technology in document analysis; strategies to use these documents in the classroom; the generating of high-quality lesson plans; and methods to carry out exemplary research projects. Spring and summer seminars will reach these objectives. The partners in this grant are Carnegie-Mellon University, Chatham College, and the Pittsburgh Teachers Institute.
