This course will give students the opportunity to develop historical research skills by uncovering and evaluating primary sources of individuals and groups that are less visible in most U.S. history classes. Students will have the opportunity to conduct field work at area archives, libraries, museums, and community history repositories in their effort to discover the past through physical and digital artifacts. Students will collaborate on a digital tool designed to inform and expand the access to these underrepresented stories into classrooms across the city and state in effort to encourage further discovery and community research. Students will also collaborate on the development of an archival toolkit designed to be shared with community groups and family members. (0.5 credit)
