The FROG Model: Enhancing Teaching and Learning by Leaping from Archives to Classrooms
The FROG Model describes a useful internal and external mantra for the collaboration of archivists and faculty, and their resulting engagement of students with primary sources. Whalen and Kasiak developed the model following their concerted efforts to diversify the archives experience for students. By taking the leap to incorporate unique materials from the archives into the classroom, faculty can promote active learning and critical thinking while simultaneously enhancing primary source literacy.
