*Library of Congress 2017 Summer Teacher Institutes –Teaching with Primary

The Library of Congress is now accepting applications for its week-long
summer institutes for K-12 educators. Held at the Library of Congress in
Washington, D.C., this professional development opportunity provides
educators of all disciplines with resources and strategies to effectively
integrate primary sources into K-12 classroom teaching.  Each session will
focus on pedagogy, with an emphasis on supporting student engagement,
critical thinking, and construction of knowledge.

While practicing these teaching strategies, attendees will explore some of
the millions of digitized historical artifacts and documents available in
the Library’s collections.  They will also conduct research to identify
primary sources and develop an activity related to their classroom content.

Five week-long sessions will be offered this summer:

*General Focus* – open to K-12 educators across all content areas:

·         June 19-23

·         June 26-30
