I’m seeking presenters for a panel entitled “Primary Sources for Teaching Israeli History,” at the upcoming AIS (June 2016). Instructors often look for ways to engage students in topics far removed from daily college life. Using non-traditional primary sources – posters, art, music, cookbooks, songs, film, material artefacts – is an effective way of bringing history to life. Panelists will share an innovative primary source they use in their undergraduate classes. They will explain how they use this source in the classroom and why they find it successful. My field is history, but other fields of Israel Studies are welcome, like anthropology, sociology, film studies, etc.
Please email your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
