Using hands-on and detective-vogue activities that develop analytical thinking, students can learn how to spot a primary source and therefore the stories it can reveal. Documents and themes support the Virginia Standards of Learning for grades one through five, especially for Virginia Studies.
Programs are designed to last from forty five to 60 minutes, and will be tailored to review material already presented within the classroom or to anticipate forthcoming instruction. At the conclusion of the program, every student can receive a free copy of To Collect, Protect, and Serve: Behind the Scenes at the Virginia Literary Festival.
