NEOEA Day 2021: Using Artifacts to Inspire Critical Thinking

NEOEA Day 2021: Using Artifacts to Inspire Critical Thinking

October 8, 2021 | 10:00am to 1:00pm  CANCELLED

You don’t need to be a museum curator to use artifacts in a classroom. Artifacts offer a powerful way to integrate primary sources into your curriculum—they may not tell us a story in words and figures, as documents do, but they can provoke questions that stimulate critical thinking and research into both personal and public histories. In this session, through the collections of the Western Reserve Historical Society, we invite you to explore how objects can be used to supplement instruction and make history tangible for your students. Together, we will practice analyzing and documenting historic objects and images, and then how to turn those observations into actionable lesson plans that inspire your students to dig deeply into the past. This experience includes full museum admission for the day (including a ride on the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel and access to the WRHS Research Library, COVID restrictions permitting).
