Primary Sources for School Librarians

tps_logoI got this information in an email recently:

Thursday, October 12th
School Librarians Get to the Source

FREE Webinar, 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET

TPS-experienced elementary, middle, and high school librarians discuss key considerations for connecting Library of Congress resources with K-12 classrooms. Tom Bober, Heather Balsley, and Jenn Hanson provide insight and strategies to promote inquiry through teacher-librarian partnerships, including:

·         Finding the right teachers to partner with

·         Tips for identifying curricular entry points

·         Selecting primary sources

(Edit: I uploaded this previously without including the link! Get to the source here!)

I’ve recommended this group before to history teachers, but now they are offering an evening seminar for librarians to brush-up on using Library of Congress primary sources with students.  I took an excellent 8-week course from this group several years ago, so I suspect this event will be good as well.
