Teacher workshops using primary resources

These programs are designed to strengthen research and analytical skills of middle and high school teachers. Teachers will learn firsthand how the historian is a detective who solves problems by discovering "clues" in letters, diaries, photographs, newspapers, and maps. They will also learn how to interpret primary source materials and how conservators and archivists catalog, conserve, and store manuscripts and artifacts.
