K-12 Professional Development Opportunity: Teaching with World History-Related Primary Sources

In this one-day workshop for grades 6-12 educators, Library of Congress education specialists will model a variety of strategies for using world history-related primary sources to engage students, build critical thinking skills, and construct knowledge. This hands-on, collaborative session will be held at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Through a series of inquiry-based classroom activities, educators will work with facsimiles of Mesoamerican artifacts, maps, paintings, and other resources from the Library’s collections. Educators will also be given a private tour of the Exploring the Early Americas exhibition. All items used during the workshop are digitized and freely available online for teachers to use with their students after the session.

The one-day session will be offered Saturday, March 10, 2018.
