This Spring, the CDI is partnering with Dr. Barri Tinkler’s EDSC 225: Teaching Social Studies in Secondary Schools
Students in this service-learning course will use our collections to create webquests for Burlington High School classrooms. A webquest is a web-based inquiry activity that allows students to pursue answers to essential questions through the investigation of digital resources. After the course, their work will be publicly available to students at teachers at other schools.
It is the CDI’s goal to make primary sources available for K-12 students in Vermont and beyond. Collaborating with EDSC 225 will allow us to better reach high school students. This partnership also allows UVM Education students to learn about curriculum development and online learning resources in a hands-on, professional environment.
