Educators' Workshop

Visualizing Change in Boston: Using Digital Commonwealth Collections to Tell Stories of Places and Activism  

Educators from the Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center will discuss new primary source sets and an accompanying lesson they created for the Digital Commonwealth site. Students use maps, photos and other resources to construct a narrative of how different locations in Boston changed over time and the role of activism in this change. This lesson can serve as a model for any educators across the Commonwealth considering how to teach about the role of citizen action in their local communities. 

Come prepared to participate as we'll be trying out the lesson together!

Additional event details and registration will be available in July.
