Teaching with primary sources at the University of the Arts

Teaching with Primary Sources Workshop for K-12 Educators This workshop uses the vast resources of the Library of Congress to help teachers and librarians at any grade level introduce new approaches to inquiry-based learning. Participants become detectives – seeking out original photographs, artifacts, images, music, playbills and more to bring curricular subjects to life. We help all educators feel more comfortable understanding how primary sources – particularly ones based in the arts – define human stories from the past. This workshop connects primary sources to your specific teaching area and considers tools to incorporate this into your work. Workshop is FREE! Advanced registration is required. Registration includes: Library of Congress educational materials, flash drive of digital resources, hands-on activities, free parking and lunch. Participants earn 3.5 PA Act 48 activity hours.

Library of Congress website > Create tools to bring these sources directly into your classroom > Learn about more free opportunities for training featuring primary

sources and the arts
