Wanted: Teachers to Serve as the Library of Congress Teacher-in-Residence During the 2015-16 Academic Year

Posted by: Danna Bell

Since 2000, the Library of Congress has recruited teachers to work with Educational Outreach staff to help teachers incorporate the Library's collection of over 16 million digitized primary sources into high-quality instruction. Previous Teachers-in-Residence have led professional development workshops for teachers in Washington, DC, and across the United States. They have represented the Library at various conferences and meetings and developed teaching materials and lessons that use the Library's digitized primary sources for national distribution. We are now recruiting for teachers in residence for the 2015-2016 academic year.

As we do at the start of each calendar year, we also take a look back at the previous year and highlight posts that received the most comments from readers and the most mentions in social media outlets. We hope this look back refreshes your memory or leads you to ideas and primary sources that you can use with your students.
