The Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Western Region (TPS) has partnered with the Western History Association (WHA) to promote teaching with primary sources. The Northern Arizona History Academy Teaching American History grant (NAHA TAH) teachers have contributed to the partnership.
The 2012 WHA Conference in Denver showcased a variety of teaching ideas at select panels on “Place as a Primary Source,” Native American art in DC, the myth of Paul Bunyan, and more. For more information, see the TPS Western Region Newsletter.
In spring 2013, scholars and teachers joined together at Notre Dame to share and collaborate, then they came together again to present their work at the WHA conference in Tucson in October. Read more at TPS Connect. For the panel titles, see WHA Teacher Scholar Panels, 2013.
2014: Teacher Scholars will convene in Santa Fe in April to share their work on Southwest Migration History. They will present their scholarship and lesson ideas at the WHA conference in Newport Beach in October.
