Teaching History and Civics with Primary Sources IN Bar​ Event

On Friday, April 26, 2024, we collaborated with esteemed partners—the Indiana Bar Foundation and the Jack Miller Center—to host the professional development workshop “Beyond Textbooks: Teaching History and Civics with Primary Sources.” Dr. Michael Promisel, Jacob Schueller, and Tim Kalgreen M.Ed. served as distinguished presenters. The day began with Dr. Promisel leading an insightful scholar session, exploring the balance between majority rule and minority rights in the constitution. Attendees engaged deeply with foundational concepts in American governance. Subsequently, the Jack Miller Center and Indiana Bar Foundation provided curriculum application breakdowns, offering practical strategies for classroom integration. Attendees also explored our collection of founding documents, fostering a tangible connection to historical concepts. We extend heartfelt gratitude to all participants, presenters, and partners for contributing to the success of the 2024 Spring Professional Development Workshop. Your dedication to advancing education and fostering civic engagement is commendable.
