The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (A.R.T.), in partnership with the National Archives at New York City, announces the sixth annual K-12 Archives Education Institute (AEI). This event is part of New York Archives Week.
This program is intended to bring together 40 local K-12 teachers, archivists, librarians, and museum educators to discuss strategies for teaching with primary source materials on the topic of women's history. The Institute is free, and a light breakfast and lunch will be provided for all participants.
The Institute will be centered around ways to engage with archival primary sources through small group activities led by archivists and educators who regularly teach with primary source materials.
During the lunch break we will hear about digital initiatives taking place across the country. The Institute will culminate with take away resources to assist in the development of K-12 curriculum activities.
At the conclusion of the event, certificates will be awarded to all participants. These certificates will be eligible for Archival Re-certification Credits (ARCs) for members of the Academy of Certified Archivists and may be eligible for professional development hours for teachers and educators.
All teachers and educators, including student teachers, as well as archivists, librarians, and museum professionals in the New York area may apply to the program. All selected applicants will be notified by October 9, 2015.
All press inquiries and other questions may be directed to: Janet Bunde, President, A.R.T. President or Tiffany Nixon, Director of the Outreach and Advocacy Committee, firstname.lastname@example.org.
