The Churchill Archive for Schools provides an expanding range of classroom-ready resources, specially written and developed by leading history educators to engage and excite as well as inform and challenge. Based around four broad topics in modern world history, the Churchill Archive for Schools also offers teachers and students an accessible entry-point to the complete Churchill Archive.
The National Council for History Education is pleased to offer the opportunity to explore this rich archival collection through the guided practice of master teachers and scholars in one of a series of webinar events. Participants will explore teacher-produced classroom investigations that are mined from over 800,000 documents associated with Sir Churchill. More than a view into the life and thoughts of the statesman, these documents bring Churchill to life as a person - as well as the many other major actors in personal correspondence. Use the archives of a great man to learn about lives of ordinary people! This webinar is free of charge and available to any educators at the K-12 or post-secondary level.
Each participant will receive full access to the complete Churchill Archives at no charge.
Each virtual session will -
- feature historical thinking and inquiry-based
investigations to modern history topics
- identify and share sets of primary source documents
that support that investigation
- connect history teachers from across the globe
around practice and curation
- provide free site license access to
the Churchill Archives
- work to create best practice models for how
technology can bring historical archives alive!
