What does it mean to teach in these times?
Asynchronous Activity 1
Watch Video to Prepare for Next Week
Next week, we will join the Advanced Institute to explore hidden histories of African American women leaders in Philadelphia.
On Monday, we will me authors Baker-Rogers and Traylor, who wrote They carried us: The social impact of Philadelphia's Black Women Leaders.
Listen to the authors discuss their work in this CBS interview.
Jot down some questions you have for the authors.
Asynchronous Activity 2
Share some of your writing with your journal group. Respond.
You may choose to connect in person or virtually (e.g., Zoom, email, Google Doc).
Asynchronous Activity 3
Join the TPS Teachers Network
The Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) program hosts a members-only online forum for educators who have participated in professional development funded by the Library of Congress. This forum is called the TPS Teachers Network.
We will use this forum to "go public" with practice by writing and posting on the network.
Join the TPS Teachers Network and check out some of the discussions. Feel free to respond to any of the threads or start your own.
We will provide more directions for posting next week.
Asynchronous Activity 4
Begin Curating Artifacts for Your Portfolio
To earn course credit, participants must complete a portfolio and submit it during the fall.
Learn more about the portfolio from the slideshow below.
After reviewing the slideshow, identify and annotate 3-4 artifacts from the past week for your portfolio.
