Join Us at the 2020 National Council for Social Studies (NCSS) Virtual Conference

Stacie Moats, of the Library of Congress, wrote this post.

If you plan to attend the first-ever NCSS virtual conference, December 4-6, 2020, education specialists from the Library of Congress and members of the Library’s Teaching with Primary (TPS) Consortium are excited to meet with you and share ideas on using primary sources in the classroom.

Teaching with Primary Sources Partner Program

Beginning on Wednesday, all registered conference attendees who log into the NCSS Virtual Conference Platform will have access to the Exhibition Hall. Select the “Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Consortium Member” option to visit the 28 virtual posters representing a range of TPS partners and their projects. Learn more about these partners’ programs, lesson plans, professional development activities, and other materials they have created using the Library’s resources. All 28 TPS posters will be available online December 2, 2020 through April 30, 2021.

The various topics presented by current and former TPS partners through these online posters include the use of Library of Congress primary sources in virtual learning environments and for teaching diversity and inclusion. You may also be interested in learning more about funding opportunities available nationwide through the Library’s Teaching with Primary Sources Regional Program, and ways to connect with other educators through the Library-funded TPS Teachers Network, a 10,000 member professional learning community centered on inquiry through primary sources.

Last but certainly not least, you’ll have the opportunity to live chat with the Library’s K-12 education team members while browsing resources available in the virtual Library of Congress booth in the Exhibition Hall (listed under the “Exhibits” option) on Friday and Saturday. Stop by and learn more about our latest offerings and activities.

We look forward to seeing you there!
