Teaching + Learning
Thanks to a grant from the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) program, RQI collaborated with seven classroom teachers to develop a series of lesson snapshots that demonstrate how the Question Formulation Technique (QFT) can be used for primary source learning.
In this lesson snapshot, a 10th grade English class reading The Crucible pauses to study a primary source artifact from 1692: a letter written by accused witches petitioning for their bail during the Salem Witch Trials.
In this lesson snapshot, a 9th grade Spanish for heritage speakers class dives into the world of descriptive language. Students examine a series of current and historical inventions, some of them artifacts from the Library of Congress, asking questions about their size, color, shape, material, function, and more.
In this lesson snapshot, a high school computer science class explores the story of the electric tabulating machine, an example of a computer in its most basic form.
In this lesson snapshot, a kindergarten class tackles a driving question: "How can we make our playground more inviting for all?" Students begin their project by inquiring about a turn of the century (ca. 1910) photograph of children playing on a New York City playground.
