In-Service Workshops

 
During our in-service workshops, educators of all subjects, grades and specialties learn what a primary source is, why primary sources have a particular value in teaching, and how these unique resources enrich student learning.

In this dynamic and useful workshop, faculty will provide training in how to lead students through inquiry-based learning strategies in the classroom. You’ll also learn how to use the vast resources of the Library of Congress and their Teacher Tools, as well as develop your own hands-on activities for your students.
 
Workshops can be delivered in three-hour or five-hour sessions – or can be customized to meet your departmental needs. Teachers in all workshops work together in small groups and pairs to model learning activities using primary sources.
