We are pleased to announce that we have received a grant from the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Eastern Region Program. Part of the project includes the following program.
This 3-part series provides teachers with concrete ways to connect primary sources to the Common Core. The first two day-long sessions will be a combination of hands-on learning and independent work time. The final after-school session will be a sharing of teacher projects. Teachers who participate in all three sessions and complete a primary source writing task for students will receive a $150 stipend.
Session 1 (8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.): Finding primary sources at the Library of Congress and connecting thinking skills to primary source analysis.
Session 2 (8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.): Developing tasks that lead to informational, explanatory, or argumentation writing.
Session 3 (4:00 – 5:30 p.m.): Sharing projects.
