Library of Congress education staff will be at the NCSS annual conference in New Orleans, November 12-14, and would like to meet you! Experts will be on hand to answer your questions about teaching with primary sources from the Library of Congress, and to hear how you use primary sources in your classroom.
Meet us in the exhibit hall, booth 531, or join us at one (or both) of these concurrent sessions:
- Found My Primary Source at the Library of Congress! What Next? Friday, November 13, 9-9:50, Room 208: Learn strategies to motivate and guide student use of primary sources so that I found my primary source drives rather than ends an inquiry-driven research project.
- Discover What’s New for Teachers from The Library Of Congress, Saturday, November 14, 8-8:50, Room 211: Join Library staff for lightning updates on new and enhanced features: teacher tools, professional development; primary sources; world culture artifacts; current legislation; social media; community connections and partnerships. Share discoveries!
Let us know in the comments if you plan to stop by!
So unfortunate that the date is already committed and painfully, some of us shall be missing this important event. I wish absentees will get the benefit later, from the archives though nothing compares with the experience of being there. Thanks.
