City and County of Butte-Silver Bow (Butte, MT 59701-9206)
Aubrey Jaap (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Bringing Local History into the Classroom

Retaining two full-time and one part-time archive staff, along with a paid intern, to place online a project integrating archival materials into the local social studies curriculum.

The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives' mission is to work with educators to enhance the classroom experience using archival collections. In April of 2020, Butte, Montana's fifth graders were scheduled to tour the Archives and work with archival materials. Due to COVID-19, these plans were cancelled. The Archives proposes providing this curriculum online by digitizing the archival materials with hands-on projects about Butte, Montana's history. The Archives proposes placing this curriculum online in a downloadable package for students and educators. The packets were developed with the School District's Curriculum Office as well as local teachers. The package would be supplemented with a virtual tour of the facility and educational information about the care and handling of archival materials will be provided.
