Examining Place as a Primary Source: Slavery in Rural and Urban NC
Teaching with Primary Sources - Mars Hill University will offer a one week Summer Institute on campus June 17- June 21, 2019. The Summer Institute will examine the space of slavery in rural and urban locations in NC. Participants will begin the week with an examination of primary sources available at the Library of Congress and local archives. Wednesday - Thursday participants will participate in experiential learning through overnight excursions to slave dwellings in Western North Carolina and Old Salem. At each place, we will examine how to visualilze spaces connected with slavery as primary sources, participate in fireside conversations regarding the issue of slavery, and reflect on how to implement this new learning in our classrooms. Teachers will leave the SI course with a 30 content hours completion certificate, which is worth 3 CEUS in most school districts. If teachers choose to design a primary source lesson plan and submit for review, then they can receive an additional 10 hour completion certificate, worth 1.0 CEUs in most districts. To register for this course, please complete questions below. Registration must be completed by May 31st. For more information please contact

Snacks and Lunch will be provided for all participants. Those who plan to stay on campus will need to pay $35 per night for housing in the guest house. If you plan to commute, then there is no registration fee. After registration, please mail your check for housing to:
