In the fall of 2022, Humanities Texas partnered with the National Archives and Records Administration and the National Archives Foundation to hold a webinar series on primary source pedagogy for U.S. history teachers in Texas.
This online professional development program was geared toward educators new to teaching or new to teaching with primary sources. This cohort-style program focused on student-centered pedagogy to promote the integration of primary sources into classroom instruction.
Functioning as a learning community, the selected cohort of teachers met for three sessions from September through November, with required assignments and activities in between. Educators who successfully completed the program requirements earned ten hours of CPE credit, a digital badge, and a $500 stipend.
The program was led by Charles Flanagan, outreach supervisor at the Center for Legislative Archives at the National Archives and Records Administration, and Valerie McVey, director of programs at the National Archives Foundation.
The schedule for the "Primary Source Pedagogy with the National Archives" online institute can be viewed here.
The webinars are made possible with major funding from the State of Texas with ongoing support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
