As the nation’s educators prepare for–or begin–the new school year, we welcome you to another year of the Teaching with the Library of Congress blog!
This blog supports teachers and school librarians as they teach with primary sources, particularly those from the rich online collections of the Library. Our posts cover a wide range of disciplines, spotlighting powerful items from the collections as well as sharing teaching strategies from our staff and many partners. Whether you’re focused on science, history, literature, civics, informational text, the Common Core State Standards, or inquiry, you’ll find helpful ideas and engaging conversation here.
