The deadline is rapidly approaching to apply for one of the five week-long Summer Teacher Institutes being held at the Library of Congress between June and August this year.Â Educators will have until March 17 at midnight Pacific Time to apply online.
Held at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., these unique professional development opportunities provide educators of all disciplines with a host of resources and strategies to successfully use primary sources with their students. Each session will focus on practical teaching strategies, with an emphasis on supporting student engagement, critical thinking, and construction of knowledge.
While practicing these core strategies, attendees will also explore some of the millions of digitized historical artifacts and documents available in the Libraryâ€™s collections. They will meet library experts and conduct research to identify primary sources related to their teaching, with the goal of developing an activity to use with their students in the coming school year.Â See what some of our previous Instituteâ€™s participants have to say about their experience!
