TEACH THE ARCHIVE OF COVID-19


This evolving digital exhibit crowd-sources primary sources of the COVID-19 pandemic and Arizona State University masters students curate them into a multi-media documentation of people’s experiences of this unprecedented moment. It provides an opportunity for teachers to work with students to think through primary sources and how the act of preserving primary source material shapes what stories will be told in the future. Invite them to curate exhibits of their own images and artifacts, illustrating different ways the story could be shaped based on different material they select for their exhibits.

A nursing dissertation is a larger piece of work, usually a thesis or research paper, written at the end of a graduate course. It fills in a knowledge gap and often offers a fresh take on an old topic. It is also the most challenging project a student will have during their nursing degree, and it can account for a large portion of the final grade. mynursingpaper.net offers a wide range of assistance, including the revision of previously written papers.
