Summer Institutes on Teaching with Primary Sources

The Library of Congress (LOC) organizes one-week Summer Teacher Institutes, during which LOC education specialists facilitate sessions modeling strategies for using primary sources to engage students, build critical thinking skills, and construct knowledge. During the sessions, participants reflect on and discuss how the strategies apply to their students, subject areas, and classroom or school libraries. In 2018 the Library will offer five institute weeks: Open Sessions (any subject area)—June 18–June 22, June 25–June 29, and July 30–August 3; World War I Focus—July 9–July 13; and Science, Technology, and Engineering Focus—July 16–July 20. Funding is provided for tuition and materials to participate in one of the professional development institutes. Interested applicants will find additional information on GetEdFunding, a free database sponsored by CDW•G of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
