Teaching the COVID-19 Archive

Marissa Rhodes's picture

Educators from various backgrounds will gather to discuss the advantages, challenges, and methods of using Journal of the Plague Year: A COVID-19 Archive (JOTPY) in the classroom. Historian of education Victoria Cain and Boston Public School teacher Claire Tratnyek have developed instructional materials and tutorials for educators wishing to use JOTPY to enrich their students' learning experiences. Digital and public history scholar Jim McGrath from Northeastern University will also be joining. This is an excellent opportunity for instructors, at both the university level and K-12, to learn how to incorporate community collecting into their syllabi and lesson plans.
