Build and Deliver your own Professional Development with the Library of Congress PD Collection

Posted on: May 2, 2011

A technology integration teacher wrote:   I love the Library of Congress resources and have used the American Memory Collections?  Where do you suggest  start when I plan summer workshop for the teachers in my district?

The good news is that the Library of Congress is making it easy for educators to deliver quality professional development through the Build and Deliver PD modules on the Teachers’ Page.   Staff developers  can select from 15  modules in PDF format to plan hands-on staff development sessions from 45 to 120 minutes in length.  Topics range from understanding the basics of copyright to analyzing maps and photographs to using primary sources to support inquiry.   The modules are FREE and ready for you to download for use in your district.   These modules and additional modules in the development process are developed by Library of Congress educators in collaboration with practicing K-12 educators.    Begin shopping for your staff development resources!

These modules are just a small fraction of the thousands of Library of Congress resources to enhance your teaching.   
Teaching with Primary Sources,
an online course begins in June.
