History Unfolded: US Newspapers & the Holocaust

May 9, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm EDT

Teach students how to DO history by researching primary source documents and newspapers in collections of local libraries and archive! Centered on the topic of American news and the Holocaust, this webinar will introduce educators to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum citizen history project, History Unfolded: US Newspapers & the Holocaust and provide them with classroom applications for the project supported by materials and professionals in the field. Educators will leave the webinar with an understanding of how History Unfolded can fit into their courses, guidelines to establish opportunities for students to perform archival news research, and materials such as a comprehensive lesson plan created by USHMM and its in-classroom educators. The webinar will be jointly delivered by a USHMM Teacher Fellow who currently teaches secondary Social Studies and USHMM staff who work with the History Unfolded project.
