The following is a guest post by Michael Apfeldorf of the Library of Congress.
On Saturday, November 4, 2017, the Library of Congress will host a free, one-day workshop for K-12 educators interested in incorporating music-related primary sources into their classroom instruction.
In this hands-on collaborative session, education specialists from the Library of Congress will model a variety of strategies for using music-related primary sources to engage students, build critical thinking skills, and construct knowledge. Through a series of inquiry-based classroom activities, educators will examine and interact with historical audio files, sheet music, song sheets, prints and photographs, and other resources from the Library’s collections. Most of these items are digitized and will be freely available online for teachers to use with their students.
Certificates are available for teachers completing the workshop.
Audience: K-12 music educators and teachers of other disciplines interested in incorporating music-related primary sources into their classroom instruction.
When: Saturday, November 4, 2017, from 9 am – 4:00 pm.
