Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of women winning the right to vote. 

We are excited to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women winning the right to vote! In this course you will immerse yourself in primary sources from this time period and learn about ways to engage your students in this important topic.  You’ll discover applications for primary source instruction and be exposed to new ways to utilize technology tools (such as Google Maps, Screencastify, Flipgrid, Hyperdocs, Google Docs, Padlet and Google Classroom) to collaborate, learn and share with your students.  You will spend time learning to search in the Library of Congress website and analyzing primary sources and reflect on how these resources can be used with students. The course offers ideas for application in the classroom, shared resources, and crowd-sourced lesson ideas for implementation in the classroom.

In this course we will use the building of the Transcontinental Railroad as a lens to  consider new viewpoints, conflicting visions, and little known stories that will help your students connect to meaningful inquiry and learning about this transformative era (late 1800’s and early 1900’s). Use technology tools such as Google Maps, Screencastify, Flipgrid, Hyperdocs, Google Docs, Padlet, Podcasts, Google Slides and Google Classroom and contribute and gain access to shared crowd-sourced resources, lesson ideas, and little known primary and secondary resources from the Library of Congress.
Explore primary and secondary resources pertaining to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) from the founding of our country to today.

From inventors to inventions, artists to engineers; explore how primary source materials, podcasts, and picture books can help you bring classroom learning alive whether in person or remote. Crowd-sourced resources from these activities can support inquiry in instruction in the classroom. Use technology tools such as Google Maps, Screencastify, Flipgrid, Google Docs for timeline creation, Hyperdocs, Padlet, Adobe Spark, Podcasts, and Google Classroom and see how inquiry and primary sources can make a meaningful difference in STEAM instruction.
