Join us for a free informative workshop focusing on reading and thinking strategies to assist students in Primary Source Analysis. Language usage and writing style in primary sources is often different from what we encounter in the modern world. Using primary sources in student instruction, in all subject areas, is crucial in helping students develop critical thinking, close reading, contextualization, and corroboration skills. The Rhode Island Historical Society invites educators in English Language Arts and Social Studies to register for this session. Space is limited! A $50 teacher stipend and refreshments will be provided. Contact with any questions.
