The American Archive of Public Broadcasting (AAPB), a collaboration between the Library of Congress and WGBH, preserves historic programming created by public media and provides a central web portal for access to these unique programs. The collection includes coverage of the Watergate hearings, education, women’s history, climate change, elections and civics, protests in America, civil rights, and much more. AAPB will be hosting a free webinar for educators on “How to Use the AAPB as a Resource in the Classroom”—as both a primary and a secondary resource. The webinar will take place on April 4, 2019, at 7 p.m. (ET). Educators are invited to join this webinar to learn more about how they and their students can take advantage of historic local and national news and cultural programs, talk shows, documentaries, and raw interviews produced by hundreds of public media organizations across the nation, and covering many of America’s most historically and culturally significant events of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. After signing up, interested participants will receive a follow-up email that includes a calendar invitation, as well as a post-webinar email with resources.
