The Institute on Primary Resources is sponsored by Corinne A. Seeds University Elementary School and the Department of Special Collections, Young Research Library at UCLA. The purpose of the Institute is to introduce teachers to resources available in the Department of Special Collections and how they can be used in the K-12 classroom. The Summer Institute on Primary Resources sponsors ten K-12 educators to attend a seven-day program to learn how primary source material can be used to enhance teaching in the K-12 classroom. During the Institute, participants research a topic of their choice using materials from the UCLA Department of Special Collections and prepare a lesson plan incorporating these materials. Teachers can work first hand with materials such as historic manuscripts, photographs, maps, oral histories, rare books, postcards and posters.
