Hello and Welcome!
To begin, let’s start with a little explanation on the blog and the Document of the Month Workshop.
We started this blog in the hopes that it will open the lines of communication between the educators attending the Document of the Month workshop and the staff who will be preparing and guiding the workshop. On this site we will post educational tools and supplemental material for educators to use before, during and after they attend the workshop. We will also be offering a little glimpse into the research preparations we have been making and offering helpful hints for archival research.
Document of the Month will be a three-day workshop for educators taking place on July 26-28, 2010. At the workshop educators will delve through primary source documents related to a topic of their choice. Then, they will develop a curriculum using the primary sources that will address the California State Education Standards.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to leave them in the comment box below.
Until next time,
