Resources from the Library of Congress for Teaching English and Language Arts

Staff from the Library of Congress will be in booth 151 at the annual convention of the National Council for Teachers of English (NCTE) in Houston on November 16-18, and we’d love to chat with you and give you a personalized tour of the Library’s primary source collectionsteaching materials, and professional development resources. Even if you can’t join us in person, though, you can explore these online resources to promote the teaching of literacy, language, and literature.

Of course, this blog has published numerous posts on topics of interest ranging from point of view, poetry, reading complex text, and beyond, drawing on the vast collections and expertise available from the Library of Congress.

We encourage you to examine the collections and teaching materials, to poke around this blog, and to stop by and say hello if you’re at NCTE. And please take a moment to leave a comment letting us know what you discover!

    If you’re at NCTE, mark your Conference Calendar to attend “Using Primary Sources to Develop Research Questions and inform Student Voices” on Sunday at 9:00am.
    TPS Eastern Region consultants, Dr. Ann Canning and Gay Thistle, will share how TPS and the Library’s collections are integral to the research project assigned by Pittsburgh teachers of literature and writing at Brashear High School.
