Immerse yourself in the rich history of your local area. You are invited to participate in a professional development opportunity through the Library of Congress. This professional development will provide “hands-on” exploration of the Library of Congress and Montana using local resources.
This two-day workshop is designed for those individuals who have participated in the TPS programs since the start of the school year, and for those who would like to learn about using primary sources in the classroom. Participants will learn how to navigate the Library of Congress and develop student engagement, and learning strategies for using primary sources to engage students.
- Inquiry Kits for Social Studies
- How to mine the TPS Network
- Pairing Picture Books and Primary Sources
- Chronicling America
- Library of Congress Labs
- Citizen U
- Eagle Eye Citizen
- TPS Connect
One of the goals is to build community and develop a statewide network. With that in mind, there will be time for sharing and working on primary sources to be used in the classroom. Something for everyone!
The workshop will be held at the Central Montana Education Center, MSU Northern Lewistown.
