Please pardon the cross-posting, but I thought some of you might be interested in some of the sessions. For example, there is one called Kindergarten Historians: Primary Sources and Early Grades Learners.

The Library of Congress is hosting a free two-day virtual conference on Tuesday, October 25th and Wednesday, October 26th from 1:00 to 5:00 pm Pacific. The first afternoon will start with a keynote speaker. On Tuesday there are three session blocks, and on Wednesday there are four. Each 50-minute session block will have two options.

Instead of registering for the entire event, register for the individual sessions you are interested in. Click on session titles to register.


Certificates of participation will be offered for the live webinars, and for a limited time, for the recorded sessions that will be posted soon after the conference is over.

Participation will be via Adobe Connect, and each session will operate somewhat like a webinar.

Here are the offerings:

Tuesday, October 25th
Keynote: Author Tonya Bolden reflects on her process of research and writing with primary sources
Look Back. See Further. Analyzing Photographs from the Library of Congress Collection —or— What's New at the Library of Congress?

Building Deeper Connections to the CCSS, C3 Framework, & Civic Competencies with Primary Sources —or— How Did Slaves Gain Their Freedom During the Civil War?

“Questions are the Engines of Intellect”: How to Stimulate Student Curiosity and Questions —or— Library of Congress 101 for Teachers

Sounds like a great opportunity to become familiar with the Library of Congress’s offerings and to learn some instructional strategies for using the resources. Teachers and library staff are invited. Please spread the word.
