Professional Development

Document Analysis Workshops

The Jimmy Carter Library and Museum (JCLAM) education team conducts workshops for a wide range of K-16 educators. We usually conduct these sessions on site at the Carter Library, but we will also come to your school to deliver training.

Utilizing primary source materials from our holdings our workshops combine scholarly research with hands-on activities, document analysis, discussions of best practices, and are designed to help teachers meet the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS).
