  • Written by Julie Thomas

    Take a look inside!

  • Grounded in extensive research and instruction experience, archivist Julie Thomas discusses the relevant theories, literacies, pedagogy, and methodologies from intra- and inter-related fields of study that form the building blocks for teaching primary source research skills (PSRS). Instructors will find guidance that cuts across disciplines and is more descriptive than manuals and more prescriptive than guidelines. Thomas introduces new concepts and terminology as well as questions some of the longstanding principles traditionally associated with primary source research.

    With plentiful examples and practical applications for teaching novice, advanced, and expert learners, readers will explore

    • characteristics of 21st-century learners, their pedagogical requirements, and how they differ from previous generations of learners;
    • sixteen literacies and twelve associated competencies and educational theories attendant with effectively teaching PSRS to 21st-century learners;
    • a variety of pedagogical paradigms and strategies for adeptly implementing those literacies, competencies, and theories; and
    • useful assessment and outreach activities, including their significance, challenges, and various approaches.
