6th Annual Social Studies Symposium

“Using Primary Sources to Teaching Controversial Issues in the Classroom"
Workshop participants will be introduced to educational programming and resources offered by the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum. Featured will be a ready-to-use, hands-on lesson plan, which can be easily replicated in the secondary social studies classroom.  The lesson plan includes primary sources and interactive-learning strategies to teach one of the most significant chapters of American history and, in addition, one of the most contentious issues of public policy in the twentieth century—the racial integration of public schools. Workshop participants will depart with all the resources they need to introduce this material to their own students.
