Uncover letters, dairies, photographs and treasured objects from digital repositories across the country, then pair these primary sources with learning activities that will help students understand the past. Historians from Know History will help you navigate numerous digital archives to find unique and engaging historical documents that fit your needs. Special attention will be given to collections that focus on Indigenous history. Aaron Stout, from the University of Lethbridge, will discuss how these primary sources can be used in the classroom by outlining learning activities that help students analyze historical documents and enhance their historical and critical thinking competencies.
