ED 6142 - Bringing History to Life Through Story Preservation Initiative

Students will be introduced to a variety of first-hand narratives and primary source documents for K-12 classrooms using the online educational resource Story Preservation Initiative (SPI) that includes links to trusted external sites: Library of Congress, PBS Learning Media, Smithsonian, Center for Ecoliteracy, J. Paul Getty Museum, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Participants will learn how to search SPI’s vast collection and study teacher created lesson plans connected to these personal accounts. In addition, students will be introduced to other classroom materials using these resources to further enrich their classroom instruction. Participants will then apply their knowledge by integrating SPI narratives and resources to create lessons and activities for a differentiated, inquiry-based unit that can be used in their own classroom.
