National Archives Summer Institute

I received this message from Carol Buswell about a wonderful opportunity:

We have a few spaces left for the National Archives Summer Institute – Primarily Teaching, August 3-7, 2009.
Don’t miss this opportunity to visit beautiful Seattle and learn more about:

  • Narrowing your topic and “doing” history,
  • Using primary sources in your classroom or library,
  • The organization and holdings of the National Archives,
  • Transcribing handwritten documents, and
  • writing accurate citations.

Plus you will receive lots of hands-on experience finding and using primary source documents themselves, as well as hearing from historians and teachers who are using primary sources in their work.

The application fee is $100, which includes all of your materials and a few meals.  All application materials can be found at

Also, we are offering 1 graduate credit hour for and additional $60.00 through Northwest Nazarene University in Boise, Idaho.  15 Clock-hours will also be available.

Hurry … there are only a few spaces left!    Carol
