The Library of Congress Teacher Conference Schedule for Early 2012

This post comes to us from the 2011-2012 Library of Congress Teacher in Residence, Earnestine Sweeting.

How often do you have the opportunity to chat with specialists who provide free access to digitized primary sources and provide information on how to make these primary sources a central part of your classroom activities?

Every year the Library’s education specialists bring Library of Congress resources to conferences in major cities across the United States. We look forward to meeting educators like you and providing suggestions on teaching with the Library’s digitized primary source collections.

Stop by our booth in the exhibit hall for a one-to-one demonstration of the Library’s online resources for teachers.  We can answer your questions and show you some of our new materials.

Check the conference program for scheduled presentations and workshops, which provide instructional strategies for teachers and ready-to-present professional development resources for administrators, coaches, and other educational professionals.

We’ll have more conference information later in the year, but here’s our line-up through June:

Consortium of School Networking Washington, DC Mar. 5-7
National Association of Elementary School Principals Seattle, WA Mar. 23-24
Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development Philadelphia, PA Mar. 24-26
American Association of Museums Minneapolis, MN Apr. 29-May 2
International Reading Association Chicago, IL Apr. 29-May 2
International Society for Technology in Education San Diego, CA June 24-27

 

Are you planning to attend a conference this year?  We look forward to seeing you!

    Hello Anne-
    We met when you came for the Teacher Institute in Oklahoma in 2008.
    Will the LOC have a booth at the
    ALA Midwinter Conference in Dallas
    this January?

    Do you know when LOC will be posting their Summer Institute schedule and application? I have a team of teachers who plan to use grant money to attend, if they are accepted.
    Thanks!

    Hello Ms. Sweeting, I am interested in contacting you about a literacy event taking place in the Bronx at the end of this Summer. Is it possible that you can email me when you are available, it would be much appreciated.
