Teaching Actions with Archives of Seine-Maritime
The educational service of Departmental archives of Seine-Maritime welcomes students and their teachers for working sessions around original documents.
These materials help arousing curiosity for history, while becoming familiar with the methods of archivists .
As part of the exhibition Traverser la Manche : 1000 ans de relations anglo-normandes, the educational service offered the following activities :
– A workshop for students based on original English and French documents, on the theme : ” English influence in Seine-Maritime from the 18th to the 20th century.”
> Laure d’Herbouville’s English correspondence, late 18th c. (138 J 48)
> Recruiting an English teacher for the Royal college of Rouen (1 T 1658)
> College of Normandy, based on the British Harrow School, c.1900 (136 J 1 / 12)
As many documents of the exhibition and workshop are in English, euro-English students in schools and colleges were an ideal audience for this action :
> 6 schools of the Department, including 8 Euro classes = beyond 200 students, visited the exhibition following the educational trail prepared by in-house teachers.
Thanks to the “Online Resources” featured on this portal, where archival documents in English and French are available, teachers may consider class or home works.
