Scheduled events:
Unearthing the Past: Researching the Hard to Find
Research plays a critical role in biographies, but when the information is difficult to locate, authors have a more difficult task in order to construct an engaging factual story about that person's life. Three authors will share their process of research and their struggles to unearth the past as well how these strategies might be used in classrooms to engage students in research.
