The History of Education Society's Teaching Committee would like to encourage further reflection and collaboration on the use of primary documents in the classroom. There has already been some discussion of the issue in recent years, and a handful of helpful resources have appeared on the HES website (http://www.historyofeducation.org/Resources/teaching.html). To expand that treatment and leverage the collective expertise of the society's membership, the committee will be proposing a panel on teaching with primary documents for the conference in Indianapolis in 2014.
If you have innovative approaches to the selection, exposition, or combination of primary sources and would be interested in speaking about your experience, please send a brief description to Campbell Scribner (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 15th.
