In celebration of Indiana’s bicentennial, on July 12, 2016, the Indiana University Center on Representative Government and the Indiana State Archives will host a special Indiana History workshop. The workshop will feature Indiana primary source analysis activities and materials from the Library of Congress as well as a talk by noted Indiana Historian and IU Professor James Madison.

During the workshop, teachers will have the opportunity to participate in primary source analysis activities using maps, photographs, documents, and other materials related to Indiana from its Territorial Days to the present.  Items will be drawn from the State Archives and the Library of Congress.

The session will be held at the Center’s office on the Bloomington campus (201 N. Indiana Ave) from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. EDT. The workshop is open to all Indiana educators and administrators but will focus on ELA and SS standards for grades K-5.  Each attendee will receive a certificate for 6 PG points.
