Upcoming Free Webinar
Asking Strong Research Questions Using Primary Sources

Presenter: Tom Bober
Date: 03/12
Time: 5:00 PM EST


Compelling primary sources often have a bit of mystery and wonder about them. That makes them a perfect tool for middle and high school students developing their own research questions. In this webinar, librarian, author, and former Teacher in Residence at the Library of Congress Tom Bober shares strategies and tips to effectively utilize primary sources at the question-forming stage of research. See how students asking their own research questions based on their interactions with items from history can increase engagement and purpose as well as positively impact this critical point in the research process.

Join us to learn how to:

  • Spark students' thinking with primary sources

  • Coach students' development of meaningful research questions

  • Build strong classroom-library collaborations to benefit students
