AEI 2014
Performance and the Arts in New York

The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (ART), in partnership with the National Archives at New York City (NARA-NYC) and the Association of Teachers of Social Studies/United Federation of Teachers (ATSS/UFT), hosted the fifth annual K-12 Archives Education Institute (AEI).

Educators and archivists from the Roundabout Theatre Company, the Carnegie Hall Archives, the Fales Library and Special Collections at New York University, and the New York Philharmonic Archives joined nearly 30 local K-12 educators, archivists, librarians, and museum professionals. The group discussed strategies for teaching with primary source materials on the topic of performance and the arts. The morning session comprised a panel discussion with guest speakers.

Following a complimentary lunch for all participants, local archivists presented selected items from their collaborations, which was incorporated into a collaborative exercise to create K-12 lesson plans for the teachers to bring back into the classroom. The presenters were encouraged to review "What is a Teachable Document?', produced by NARA-NYC, which outlines guidelines for selecting appropriate archival materials for students.

At the conclusion of the event, certificates were awarded, which are eligible for Archival Recertification Credits (ARCs), as well as professional development hours for teachers and educators.

The event was hosted by NARA-NYC, located on the third floor of the Alexander Hamilton Customs House (1 Bowling Green) from 9:30 am to 4 pm on Saturday, October 11, 2014.
