Teaching from the Archives

In 2019, Hemispheres put on a 4-day professional development workshop in which participants were trained to do archival research in the Harry Ransom Center with the goal of creating new lesson plans and activities for their classrooms. Using rare and unique primary sources from the Ransom Center’s collections, these curricula are the partial result of our workshop. Please contact Rachel Meyer for additional materials and activities related to these lessons.
