We’ve already announced the Library’s first online conference for teachers, “The Library of Congress and Teachers: Unlocking the Power of Primary Sources,” and here’s what we’re looking forward to!
There will be 15 one-hour sessions, October 27-28 from 4-8 ET, on topics from literacy and historical thinking to historic newspapers and the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
This conference will be a unique opportunity to interact with Library of Congress subject specialists, instructional experts from the Librarys Teaching with Primary Sources Consortium, and other recognized K-12 leaders. We’ve developed sessions along two broad strands: “Resource Spotlight” and “Instructional Strategies”
- Library experts will include specialists from the World Digital Library, Chronicling America, the Prints and Photographs division, the Veterans History Project, and more.
- Consortium partners will facilitate a session on literacy, and another on young learners and images.
- Other presenters will include Dr. Sam Wineburg and Dr. Joel Breakstone from Stanford University; Dr. Barbara Stripling from Syracuse University; Dr. Dan Rothstein of the Right Question Institute; and more.
Each session will be recorded and certificates will also be available for a limited time to those who view the recordings.
