"Snapshots in Time" is an in-depth examination of digitized images from the Virginia Historical Society's collection that can be used to address themes in post–1865 Virginia and American history. These images address historical themes such as education, industrialization, urbanization, transportation, and the changing roles of women.
Students will be introduced to the idea of photographs as an important historical primary source. The instructor will present several photographs, fostering a process of inquiry among the students and providing background information.
During this program, students will learn to:
analyze and interpret primary source materials
identify and define primary versus secondary sources
track social changes in education, industrialization, urbanization, transportation, and the changing social roles for women and African Americans in Virginia and the south in the early 20th century
understand the role ordinary Americans played in the making of American history
