Archival instruction is not just for history classes! Archival documents are ideal for teaching students to analyze information sources and consider the historical context of their topics of study. In-person instruction sessions are temporarily suspended to preserve the health and safety of staff and students. We will be conducting remote primary source engagement experiences and are happy to work with faculty to develop a presentation (either synchronous or asynchronous) that will fit with your curriculum.
Primary Source Analysis: Your students will work in groups to study and analyze digitized archival objects from Briscoe Center collections.
Introduction to Archival Research: Let us show your class how to locate primary sources, and how to access our digital collections.
Lesson and Assignment Planning: Plan a lesson or assignment using archival documents from the Briscoe Center. We’ll help!
