Primary Source Research and Narrative Presentation
Student’s understanding is greatly enhanced when they conduct primary source research & create multi-media narratives on what they have learned. Primary source research can be conducted in diverse content areas & educational environments. By conducting interviews with people within the community & gathering data from real world experiences, students develop a connection with content. Narratives provide a rich assessment of student learning. By creating narratives which incorporate images, videos, & sound, students demonstrate depth of understanding. Primary source research & narrative creation are easily implementable in today’s classrooms through use of mobile devices. We are two high school educators who work with iPads in our classrooms - one in humanities and one in science, one in rural Maine and one in urban New York, one male and one female. We would like to engage the audience in a conversation about our student’s work with primary source research & narrative presentation.
