While the last 100 years have brought many changes to New York City and country, many of the cultural and political issues remain the same. This seminar will delve deeply into the Library’s collections to illustrate how primary resources narrate the story of the early twentieth century in order for teachers to be able to lead their students to draw conclusions and comparisons to today. Teachers will learn how to engage their students in studies of history through multiple entry points into the subject area, utilizing primary resources, writing from evidence and the arts.
