CDI Collaborates with Secondary Education Service-Learning Course

Published: December 16, 2009 by Robin M. Katz

This Spring, the CDI is partnering with Dr. Barri Tinkler's EDSC 225: Teaching Social Studies in Secondary Schools

Students in this service-learning course will use our collections to create webquests for Burlington High School classrooms. A webquest is a web-based inquiry activity that allows students to pursue answers to essential questions through the investigation of digital resources.

It is the CDI's goal to make primary sources available for K-12 students in Vermont and beyond. Collaborating with EDSC 225 will allow us to better reach high school students. This partnership also allows UVM Education students to learn about curriculum development and online learning resources in a hands-on, professional environment.

Want to sign up for this course? Matriculated and Continuing Education students can now use CRN 11333 to enroll. Contact the registrar for more details.
