Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History (New York, NY 10036-5900)
Karina Gaige (Project Director: January 2007 to April 2008)
Summer Seminar in Digital History Teaching

A four-day workshop for thirty school teachers focused on digital resources on the American Revolution and the Civil War.

The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History seeks funding for a digital humanities workshop in American history for elementary and secondary school teachers. The four-day seminar, to be held in New York City in August of 2007, will introduce participants to the rich variety of public domain primary source material available on the Internet, including documents from the Gilder Lehrman Collection. Guided by well-known scholars, participants in the seminar will examine primary sources from the American Revolution and the Civil War, and explore ways in which they can use free, widely available software in the classroom to create multimedia historical documentaries with their students. Most importantly, the seminar will demonstrate how teachers can harness students' enthusiasm for digital technology while at the same time immersing them in primary sources from American history.
