The following is a guest post by Michael Apfeldorf of the Library of Congress.
This spring, the Library of Congress will host two free, one-day workshops for K-12 educators interested in incorporating WWI-related primary sources into their classroom instruction.
In each session, Library of Congress education specialists will model a variety of strategies for using primary sources to engage students, build critical thinking skills, and construct knowledge. Through a series of inquiry-based classroom activities, participants will work with historic photographs, prints, manuscripts, maps, multimedia, and other resources from the Library’s collections. All of these items are digitized and freely available online for teachers to use with their students after the session.
Certificates are available for teachers completing the workshop.
Audience: K-12 educators of all disciplines interested in incorporating primary sources into their classroom instruction.
When: Two separate one-day sessions will be offered.
· Tuesday, March 27, 2018, and
· Thursday, April 5, 2018.
Each session will run from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm; building opens at 8:30 am.
Where: Library of Congress; Washington, D.C.
