In January of 2020, teachers from across the Capital Region met at the Schenectady County Historical Society to learn how to find local primary sources and incorporate them into their classroom curriculum. Librarian, Marietta Carr, introduced the educators to the collections held at the historical society. Dr. Kristi Fragnoli provided guidance in selecting appropriate primary sources and brainstorming lesson ideas. A generous grant from the Bender Family Foundation funded this two-part workshop and the lesson creation. The results of this teacher training are the lessons on this page.
