This post is by Teresa St. Angelo, the 2016-2017 Library of Congress Teacher in Residence.
Want to discover how to enhance and enrich the educational experiences of young students using primary sources? Join us for a workshop Saturday, May 6, 2017, from 9:00am – 1:00pm at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
The current Library of Congress Teacher in Residence, Teresa St. Angelo, along with other Library of Congress education staff, will model a variety of strategies for using primary sources in early elementary grades to engage, build critical thinking skills, and construct knowledge. This hands-on collaborative session will feature maps, prints and photographs, historic audio and film recordings, and other resources from the Library’s collections, all of which will be available to teachers after the session.
Participants will also learn about unique children’s books from the past and ways in which the Library is making them more accessible. In addition, a specialist from the Library’s Young Readers Center will explain resources and non-fiction books that support the K-2 learner.
