Teaching with Special Collections: ‘America Then and Now’

In the team-taught course “America Then and Now,” students explore the shaping of America through a range of approaches, including archival research at the Princeton University Library. The course, first taught in 2013, was designed with the overarching question: What should every Princeton student, upon graduating, know about America? Students gain a broad perspective on America by considering an array of historical and contemporary issues central to the development of this country. https://www.princeton.edu/news/2020/03/04/teaching-special-collections-america-then-and-now
