Inquiry and Teaching with Primary Sources (ITPS): What is a Vote Worth?

Saturday, July 27, 2019 AND October 12, 2019 | 9AM-3PM | Frazier History Museum

On August 18, 1920, Congress ratified the Nineteenth Amendment granting women the right to vote. As the centennial of this important event approaches the Frazier History Museum is pleased to partner with Jefferson County Public Schools and the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources to offer a professional development focused on utilizing the Inquiry Design Model to teach on the topic of Suffrage.  

During this two-day workshop, teachers will . . .

  • Navigate the Library of Congress primary source materials, including instruction and practice with source assessment using the Library of Congress teacher resources.

  • Use the website www.whatisavoteworth.org to build inquiry lessons aligned to the new Kentucky Academic Standards for Social Studies.

  • Learn about the alignment of essential elements of inquiry--questions, tasks, and sources as they construct one or more lessons around women’s suffrage and voting rights.

  • In collaboration with fellow teachers and inquiry consultant mentor, build inquiry unit using major tasks--organization, discussion, argumentative, and informed action that will help students own their learning and utilize what they discover beyond the walls of their classroom.

  • Share out inquiry resources and explain how they aligned primary source materials to questions and tasks.

  • Learn about a community-wide initiative focused on suffrage and the Frazier History Museum’s major exhibition opening in March 2020 that will celebrate this important centennial and examine Kentucky’s unique role in the fight for women’s suffrage.

STIPEND: JCPS teachers who participate in all components of the workshop (both all-day sessions and inquiry writing and development) will receive a total stipend of $450 for their participation. This workshop is sponsored in part by the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Midwest Region located at Illinois State University.
