Today we launched a new version of our school site, Företagskällan (Business History Source, in loose translation). The site is filled with – free! – articles, videos and pods about business history, for students and teachers to use in a classroom setting. Each content is accompanied by a lesson plan, matched with the curriculum for secondary school education.
Anahi Davila is head of school activities at the Centre for Business History in Stockholm and editor for Företagskällan:
– As an archivist and also as a former teacher, it is a thrill to work from the over 70 000 shelf meters of source material that we have here at the Centre for Business History. These primary sources, from the companies whose archives we look after, is what we build all our lesson plans around.
