TPS Spotlight: Crossroads of History Project

OER Commons page for NCCE TPS lesson

The Northwest Council for Computer Education developed the Crossroads of History project, which allows learners to use primary sources and social justice standards to conduct meaningful dialogue and inspire informed actions that give voice to marginalized communities, thanks to a Teaching with Primary Sources regional grant from the TPS Western Region. Participants first completed an on-demand course comprising best practices in learning, expert teacher guidance, and reflection. Next, they created learning resources focused on civil rights and social justice issues to share on the Open Educational Resources (OER) Commons website. In addition to serving teachers, the project also sought to include other educators such as public librarians, after-school program leaders, and more. | NCEE Crossroads of History OER learning resources
