Teaching New York City History in K-12 Schools Using Primary Sources: A Report on Our April 28, 2001 Conference

Our recent conference aimed to help teachers integrate primary documents into their local history or social studies classrooms. Teachers who had developed successful lessons led workshops and panel discussions to demonstrate their projects. Cultural institutions (museums, historical societies, preservationists, television producers and newspapers) demonstrated cutting edge videos, web sites, slide and Power-Point presentations, and lesson plans that can be tailored to classroom curricula.
