Engagement Strategies from Emerging America:
History Education Resources: Culturally Relevant Pedagogy and Primary Sources videos for teachers
On the EmergingAmerica.org website, we are gathering resources that teachers can use to expand their repertoire of strategies for supporting all learners. The Minnesota Historical Society has published a series of brief educational videos for new and experienced teachers. Each 10 minute segment introduces the concepts of culturally relevant pedagogy and the ways that using primary sources expands students’ understanding of history.
Minnesota teaching materials, including curriculum featured in the videos.
Check out Accessing Inquiry Engagement Strategies page at EmergingAmerica.org for more professional development videos and articles.
