We’re excited to return to Chicago for the National Council for the Social Studies conference, November 30 – December 1. We hope to meet you at one of our events during the conference.
On November 30, from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m., 41 Teaching with Primary Sources partners and regional grant recipients will present posters in Grand Ballroom B in the Hyatt Regency hotel. Learn more about these partners’ programs, lesson plans, professional development activities, and other materials they have created using the Library’s resources. In addition, civics apps partners will be demonstrating their projects. Stop in for coffee or tea and snacks and leave with materials you’ll be able to use with your students immediately.
On Saturday, December 1, from 1:30-2:30 p.m., session #2174, “How Teachers are Using Interactives to Explore Congress and Civic Participation,” in the Toronto Room in the Hyatt Regency, will provide another opportunity to meet civics apps grantees and see what they are doing to help students learn more about Congress and become more engaged in their communities.
Visit us in booth #809 in the exhibit hall to learn more about:
- free resources for teachers;
- programs like crowd.loc.gov, a way you and your students can transcribe documents from the Library’s collections to help make them more accessible to all; and
- the many new materials that have been added to the Library’s online collections, including the papers of Theodore Roosevelt and Mary Church Terrell, additions to topics in Chronicling America (and an expanded range of newspapers to include the years 1789-1963), films in the National Screening Room and the first of the newly available Congressional Research Service reports.
We look forward to seeing you there!
