Just a reminder that teachers have two chances to talk with Library of Congress education specialists at conferences this week.
If you’re attending the National Council for the Social Studies in Seattle, Washington from November 16-18 or the National Council of Teachers in English in Las Vegas, Nevada from November 15-18 stop by to see us! The Library of Congress will have a booth in the exhibit hall and will be presenting sessions during the conferences.
The first 25 subscribers of the Teaching with the Library of Congress blog visiting us at our booth at each conference will receive a special gift. Just show this message on your mobile device or bring a printed copy to our booth in the exhibit hall.
Our presentations are:
Free Professional Development for All from the Library of Congress
Fri, 11/16/2012 – 10:15am – 11:15am

Library of Congress: Online Resources for Meeting Your Standards
Grand Ballroom Foyer, Level One, MGM Grand
Saturday, 11/17 8:00 AM – 9:15 AM
Experts will be on hand to answer your questions about teaching with primary sources from the Library of Congress, and to discuss ways to use primary sources to meet standards—state content standards, the Common Core, and more. Stop booth number 808 at NCSS and booth number 741 for NCTE. Make sure to pick up a sticker to identify yourself as a teacher or a school librarian.
