It seems that the Library of Congress has something for everyone, including teachers of all grade levels. These are just a few snippets from the rich conversations that the Library’s education specialists had last weekend at the ASCD conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
“This is the best thing I’ve seen all day.” – Technology coordinator from Wisconsin
“I just want to go home now and explore all this!” – Middle school teacher from North Carolina
“Great resource for interdisciplinary studies – no textbook can take the place of going to the primary sources directly.” – New Hampshire high school teacher
“Why have I never thought of using this?” – First grade teacher from New Jersey
“I just want to tell you that my twelve year old son once was asked ‘What 3 things would you take with you to the moon?’ He replied, ‘the Library of Congress.’” – Vendor in the exhibit hall
See for yourself what the Library of Congress has for teachers.
