Historical Thinking - Data Analysis and Visualization

Much of our understanding of history come through an analysis of primary source data: population growth and migrations, economic records, military statistics, prison demographics. Historical thinking requires being able to interpret this information. Learn to utilize some simple technology tools to find and make this data come alive. Help your students understand trends and learn to present their own data-augmented research in visually meaningful ways.

Required: laptop computer. Cost: $50/person.

Exploring Ancient Civilizations

This institute is aligned to the 6th grade history-social science curriculum. We will explore the theme of authority and individual through the lens of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Rome, Greece, and the Legion of Honor's associated collections. Participants will create a curricular tool by working with the museum's artifacts and analysis tools.
