Archives are poised to play a more significant and instrumental role in student achievement since the implementation of the Common Core standards. With a particular emphasis on 21st century learning skills, including the ability to think critically, communicate clearly, and collaborate with peers to create high-quality, scholarly work, these standards present an opportunity for archivists to share their expertise with all educators and learners.

This course uses Brooklyn Connections, the education division of the Brooklyn Public Librarys local history archive, the Brooklyn Collection, as a case study to model for participants how to implement school outreach initiatives at their institutions. Specifically, this includes how to utilize archival collections to meet Common Core Standards, create lesson plans, and engage students and teachers in local history.
