Primary Sources: Accessible and Engaging Educational Tools

by | Jun 1, 2022 | Teaching Jewish History | 0 comments

Libraries are not only places where books live—they are where manuscripts, documents, maps, recordings, and other items of significance can come alive. The National Library of Israel has an amazing trove of resources with unique national, historic, and cultural significance for the Jewish people—many of which are available on The National Library of Israel for Educators website. The website is filled with curated resources, including lesson plans, digital activities, webinars, materials about the Jewish calendar, Israel and more. In this video, you will be introduced to four key steps of learning with primary sources, from initial observations to finding personal connection and meaning and even creating something new. You will learn how to access these resources from anywhere in the world and, more importantly, you will get a sense of how to use them as interactive artifacts for students to explore learning Jewish History.
