Program - Trends in Archives PracticeTeaching with Primary Sources

Tamar Chute and Ellen Swain will introduce and facilitate a discussion of the newest book in the SAA series, Trends in Archives PracticeTeaching with Primary Sources. Edited by Christopher J. Prom & Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe ; featuring modules by Tamar Chute, Doris Malkmus , Sammie Morris, Ellen D Swain , and Elizabeth Yakel.

“As Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe notes in the introduction, "These three modules present a wealth of resources for meeting the challenges of primary source literacy instruction. They can be read start-to-finish to build a foundation for practice. Or, they can be dipped into as needed by the busy educator who needs practical ideas or inspiration for that next instruction session."

Finally, what if archivists were all reading the same book at the same time? Join your colleagues in the SAA’s program,  One Book – One Profession, reading, talking about, and building on ideas from Teaching with Primary Sources.
