Primary Sources and Project-Based Learning: An Online Summer Institute

July 20 - 24, 2020

K-12 educators are invited to take part in a project-based research experience. Participants will join interactive webinars and do in-depth research using online collections. Funded by a grant from the Library of Congress, Maryland Humanities presents this free week-long institute in partnership with the National Archives at College Park, MD. Choose a research topic and explore primary sources from the Library of Congress and the National Archives. Work with electronic resources, learn about the National History Day 2021 theme, and complete your own mini-research project to take back to your classroom.
