Join Library of Congress education specialists for a free one-day Teaching with Primary Sources professional development program for K-12 educators, held at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm on February 1, 2020.
In this hands-on, collaborative workshop, we will model a variety of inquiry-based teaching strategies designed to help educators use primary sources to engage students, build critical thinking skills, construct knowledge, and inspire original research. Digitized primary sources from the Rosa Parks Papers will be featured during the workshop. Additionally, participating educators will explore the Library of Congress website and participate in a special guided tour of the Library’s Rosa Parks exhibit, In Her Own Words.
There is no charge for this professional development program. For more information and to register, go here. Apply now, as space is limited. Please direct questions to [email protected].
