The Newberry Digital Collections for the Classroom

Kara Johnson, The Newberry Library | Sep 22, 2020

The Newberry Digital Collections for the Classroom is an educational resource designed for teachers and students featuring primary sources from the Newberry’s holdings, contextual essays, and discussion questions. Each document collection features critical thinking prompts that encourage student analysis, as well as an overarching question that helps students synthesize about 8 to 14 sources. Ideal for advanced secondary and undergraduate history students in a flipped or remote classroom, this site can serve as an introduction to archival work. It offers a broad range of topics and interdisciplinary resources for research papers or presentations.
