Teaching with Primary Sources: Inquiry Kits
A partnership between Maryland Humanities, Maryland Public Television, and the Maryland State Department of Education, funded by the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources program, the American History and World History collections of inquiry kits allow students to select a research topic of interest and evaluate themed primary sources from the Library of Congress. From early cultures to the modern-day role of the United States, the inquiry kits examine social studies/history themes and align with Maryland curriculum units. Inquiry Kits are great for use in classroom activities, or as starter kits for History Day projects!
Professional Development Opportunities
Maryland Humanities staff members are available to provide free professional development or student visits related to Teaching with Primary Sources and Teaching with Primary Sources Inquiry Kits, in addition to providing Maryland History Day support.
