How can time-strapped teachers find and use free resources from the Library of Congress?

How can time-strapped teachers find and use free resources from the online collections of the Library of Congress to support the needs of diverse learners?

On Thursday, May 7, at 4 PM ET, join Library experts and an ESOL teacher and bilingual peer observer to learn strategies “to engage students in the analysis of evidence (Common Core), increase comprehensible input (diverse learners), and promote content learning and student engagement.”

Library experts will share strategies on analyzing primary sources to enhance the development of critical and analytical thinking skills. Areli Schermerhorn, an ESOL teacher from Syracuse who participated in a 2014 Library of Congress Summer Teacher Institute, will join us to discuss strategies for teaching with primary sources to support teaching and learning at all grade and language proficiency levels. Areli will share her experiences with how primary sources can address CCSS – including practice with complex texts and academic language, the use of text-based evidence to support claims, and building knowledge through non-fiction resources.
