Last year we launched “Of the People: Live from the White House,” a virtual field trip series with Discovery Education to give middle and high school students unique access to the White House and Obama Administration officials.
On September 17, the “Of the People” series continues with a Constitution Day celebration at the National Archives with Archivist of the United States David Ferriero to learn about the document and the Archives.
Register now to watch the event live on Wednesday, September 17 at 1:00 p.m. ET.
Students will take a virtual tour of the National Archives, learn about their document collection, and how historians are actively using primary source documents in their research. Students will also learn about the Constitution through a document analysis strategy that reinforces the skills needed to read, write, and think like a scholar.
You can tune-in September 17 at 1:00 p.m. ET -- and watch upcoming installments in this series -- on Discovery Education’s website.
Past “Of the People” events include a behind-the-scenes look at the art and history of the White House with curator William Allman, a look at a digital classroom with Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, and a special “Exchange for a Day” with First Lady Michelle Obama during her trip to China.
