The Center, the Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Columbia University, and the Schomburg Center for Research and Black Culture, The New York Public Library, are partnering to address ways to make archival research and the politics of preserving and collecting the historical record a cornerstone of historical literacy on the 6-12 level. On August 3, 2016, partners will convene a think tank at Teachers College to explore with historians, archivists, and educators how the ins-and-outs of the archives may be integral to how history education is taught on the 6-12 level. The think tank will be an important step toward the development of teacher workshops in “archives basics” and curriculum and website design for the public school.
