Abstract

This pilot, mixed method study examined the level of engagement, challenge, and effectiveness of 24 highly rated, field-tested math and science lessons that incorporated digital primary sources as part of a grant-funded professional development program for teachers. Each lesson, available in a teaching materials collection on the World Wide Web (WWW), was field-tested and reviewed by at least three teachers other than the lesson author. Preliminary findings indicate that the majority of lessons examined were very engaging, challenging, and effective. However, these analyses also indicate that the majority of the most highly rated lessons were those that utilized simpler technologies (e.g., PowerPoint slides with primary sources such as photos, letters).
