This session will highlight the tools available on DocsTeach.org from the National Archives Experience with a focus on constructing assignments that let students build upon basic document-analysis skills to think critically and meaningfully engage with primary sources. For first-time or existing DocsTeach users, attendees will become familiar with the following aspects of DocsTeach.org:

  • Interpreting Data, Weighing the Evidence, Mapping History, Making Connections, Seeing the Big Picture, Finding a Sequence, Focusing on Details tools
  • Scaffolding with Primary-Source Based Activities
  • Designing DocsTeach Classrooms for multi-step lessons or units
