November 19, 2020 marks the 157th anniversary of the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery at Gettysburg National Military Park. This webinar is presented by the Seminary Ridge Museum and Education Center, located in historic Schmucker Hall, which stood witness to the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg. The Museum’s Executive Director, Peter Miele, a former high school history educator and now a sought-after history lecturer, along with the library chair of the Cumberland Valley School District, share ideas and approaches for using museum-based resources to enrich and expand history explorations and understanding. They use examples of the free multimedia learning resources created by the Seminary Ridge Museum and Education Center to illustrate the use of primary sources, museum artifacts and contextual information in creating remote, hybrid and onsite learning experiences for students. They cover strategies for integrating museum resources into student research and independent learning projects and activities.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to middle and high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
