Analyzing Historic Documents Through An Economic Lens

Primary source analysis is key to developing students who can think like historians, political scientists, and economists. This workshop for middle and high school teachers of History, Government, Civics, Social Studies and Economics will look at familiar types of documents in a new way that helps reveal the sometimes invisible mechanisms that shaped past events.  The workshop will include rich content, model lessons you can replicate in the classroom, resources for analyzing primary resources from an economic perspective, and access to all the materials. Attendees will also receive a certificate for 3.5 hours of professional development.  

 The workshop will be offered at five locations.

There are no fees for these programs, but you must register in advance. Dates and locations are in the following table:
