Teaching History From A New Perspective By Connecting To Community

During this webinar, Erin Conklin, K-12 Social Studies Supervisor for Duval County Public Schools, drew on her experience working with the XanEdu Curriculum Development team to create customized student books and e-books, which help teach state and local history from perspectives the students have not experienced before. She discusses how she incorporated primary and secondary sources, such as newspapers, interview transcripts, photographs, maps, census data, and other materials that aren’t always readily available to students.
