Foundations: Analyzing Complex Images (Library of Congress)
In this webinar, participants will learn and apply foundational strategies for analyzing primary sources that are particularly rich and complex in detail. When working with such images, how can we help students notice and examine details that may otherwise go unnoticed? And how can we help them relate these details to one another, in order to arrive at a fuller understanding of the whole? We’ll practice these strategies together and reflect on how they can be applied in your educational setting.
