Using Infobase’s U.S. History Databases to Help Students Make Sense of Current Events
August 18, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
With everything happening in the United States right now, many students are likely having a difficult time processing it all because they lack the context that our nation’s history provides. This webinar will show schools and libraries how Infobase’s selection of databases dedicated to the study of U.S. history can be used to address topics such as racism, pandemics, and the treatment of Native Americans. We’ll begin with American History, which offers the broadest scope of coverage. Next, we’ll examine two databases whose focus is much narrower but extremely important, African-American History and American Indian History. Each resource includes hundreds of biographies, primary sources, videos, slideshows, images, timelines, maps, and graphs, plus we offer full cross-searchability across all of the Infobase history databases.
