What is Teaching?

Sep 28, 2022

Oklahoma Educators are invited to a workshop with thought leaders in Education, Museums, Culture, and Archives from around the nation focused on the role of primary sources in teaching and learning the American story.

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the documented narratives informing the many American Stories of our communities.
  • Explore primary sources as teaching texts that can engage state standards in the current complicated political environment.
  • Ask, how may community expertise shape the truths of history?
