Telling Soldier Stories
Historical Inquiry and the Civil War
The Civil War is a crucial episode in American history. One hundred and fifty years later, the war still surrounds us. It is hiding in plain sight across Vermont in cemeteries, villages, parks, public art, and historic sites.
At this two-day workshop teachers will work through a Common Core short focused research project that begins with local cemeteries and then moves to online research and collaborative writing.
Activities include: *Close reading of informational text
*Analyzing primary sources with students
*Connecting primary sources to informational text
*Exploring technologies that support student inquiry and writing
Teachers will also have the opportunity to connect their classroom work to service learning through a partnership with the Virginia Civil War Journey Through Hallowed Ground.
14 relicensure credits; 1 graduate credit through Castleton State College for $115.
