Very often when archivists are asked to give an instruction session, we use a show-and-tell model. Although this type of session serves an important function in introducing students to archives, it does not give them a realistic perspective on the research process. The panelists provide four perspectives on developing successful instruction sessions that focus on research and open the discussion for building better pedagogy.

Camila Zorrilla Tessler: Designing the Room Where It Happened: Using Popular Culture to Encourage Primary Source Research
Rose Oliveira: "The Rumbling of an Avalanche": Exploring the Reception of Silent Spring
Fatemeh Rezaei: Introducing Archives and Archival Research to Undergraduate Students: Exploring A New Practice
Anna Trammell: Designing Archives Instruction Sessions Using a Social Justice Framework
