Reading Like a Historian

How To Use OUR Primary Sources in YOUR Classroom

Mystic Seaport Museum is dedicated to helping teachers and students understand and utilize the primary and secondary source materials available in our collection. The main focus of this workshop will be analyzing documents.  Teachers who attend will experience a guided analysis, then get to work in teams to decipher real manuscript material in the Musuem collection. All materials examined will be available on the Mystic Seaport for Educators website, for easy use in the classroom.  The document workshop will be followed by a brief tour through our artifact vault.
