At the first session we’ll spend some time looking at historical thinking skills and see which skills are being taught at which grade, and how. We’ll pick up on the historical thinking skills throughout the fall. Each fall session will include an activity that connects the Essential Question and major topic to one or two local primary sources. As a group we will discuss how the Essential Question and topic are taught at the two different levels.

At the December session, we will also prepare for our day at Rauner Library.  January will be a full day at Rauner where participants can collect primary sources for use in their classroom. This day will be open to any teacher in the departments, even if they haven’t participated in the fall. In February we’ll have a follow-up session about the Rauner day.
