About this Item

Title

  • Turning Inquiry into Action: How to Engage Young Learners with KidCitizen

Summary

  • This presentation highlights KidCitizen episodes that engage young children in analyzing resources from the Library of Congress and connecting what they learn to their daily lives. KidCitizen is a freely available digital interactive designed to foster young children's inquiry with primary sources. The digital episodes facilitate a developmentally appropriate process of careful looking, historical thinking, and evidence-informed analysis that are at the center of disciplinary literacy. By slowing down the act of looking, children discover new information and construct viewpoints as primary sources are mined. This session is facilitated by Ilene R. Berson and Michael J. Berson, University of South Florida.
