Teaching with WWI-Related Primary Sources Face-to-Face Workshop

In this one-day workshop for K-12 educators, Library of Congress education specialists will model a variety of strategies for using WWI-related primary sources to engage students, build critical thinking skills, and construct knowledge. This hands-on, collaborative session will be held at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Through a series of inquiry-based classroom activities, educators will work with historic photographs, prints, manuscripts, maps, multimedia, and other resources from the Library’s collections. All of these items are digitized and freely available online for teachers to use with their students after the session. Two separate one-day sessions will be offered: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 and Thursday, April 5, 2018.
