History at Home: Place-Based Learning Strategies to Explore Local History

Open to: All Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: How can we guide our students in making use of their surroundings to prompt historical inquiry?  The Center for Brooklyn History team and Miriam Sicherman, creator of the closet archaeology program and author of Brooklyn’s Barren Island (Arcadia, 2019) to learn how we as educators can help our students find fascination in everyday objects and realize that they are living in someone else’s past.   We will provide strategies for supporting place-based learning in a variety of contexts, with a specific focus on how place-based learning helps us ask questions that will lead to further inquiry with primary source documents, including maps.
