We are excited that the National Council for the Social Studies Conference will be meeting in Washington, D.C., December 2-4. Education specialists from the Library of Congress and members of the Library’s Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) consortium are looking forward to meeting with you and sharing ideas on using primary sources in the classroom.
On Friday, December 3, from 10am to 12:15pm, we will be hosting the TPS Knowledge Exchange in Exhibit Hall D. Some current and former TPS partners will present information on their activities and demonstrate lesson plans and other programs they have created for teachers. In addition, staff from the Library of Congress will present resources including Chronicling America, Congress.gov, the Veterans History Project, the American Archive of Public Broadcasting as well as information on the Library’s exhibits including the upcoming programming relating to the centennial of the United States entry into World War I. Civics apps grant recipients will demonstrate their products.
The Library’s K-12 education team will also be at booth 747 in the exhibit hall on Friday and Saturday. Stop by and learn more about our activities including upcoming webinars, updated content for teachers, and new ebooks. We look forward to seeing you there!
