College hosts Teaching with Primary Sources workshop

Dr. Juan Walker presented the first of the College of Education’s Teaching with Primary Sources workshops on Oct. 11.

Several dozen local educators attended the workshop, which was supported by a grant from the Library of Congress and Waynesburg University.

“The reviews were overwhelmingly positive,” Walker said. “But we’ll be looking for ways to make the workshop even better in the future.”

Keynote speaker Dr. William Gaudelli, Professor of Education at Columbia University, gave an impassioned address about the importance of encouraging critical thinking in the 21st century classroom.

Sessions during the day-long workshop included topics like the relationship between primary sources and drama, teaching history from first-person narratives, and a running technology integration theme.

The next Teaching with Primary Sources workshop will be Jan. 31.
