FREE TPS-UArts Workshop for K-12 Educators

Free Teaching with Primary Sources One Day Workshop 
Featuring Keynote Speaker Morris J. Vogel from the Tenement Museum in New York
Saturday May 16:  10 am – 4 pm | The University of the Arts

Workshop is free, but advance registration is required.  Spaces are limited. Register Now!

We are pleased to invite K-12 teachers to attend our free spring one-day workshop, designed to engage teachers in all subjects in the benefits of primary sources from the Library of Congress to inspire you and your students.

Featuring a keynote talk by Morris Vogel, president of the Tenement Museum and published author regarding the significance of cultural history, this workshop brings a unique perspective into how cultural artifacts can illuminate teaching across the curriculum.

The workshop includes guided activity sessions working hands-on with the Library of Congress digital collections and teacher tools, providing easy implementation of inquiry-based learning into your classroom.  Activities are designed to help your students to observe, reflect and question sources in many subject areas and make thoughtful connections. Learn how to differentiate between primary and secondary sources, navigate and access primary source items from the Library of Congress, and discover the different formats primary sources have — all to help students explore the ways people have documented their stories throughout history.  In addition, we have special activity sessions during the workshop for teachers to explore specific artifacts such as photographs, sound, prints and imagery to enhance student learning in a range of subject areas and grade levels.

Join us to effectively understand and use the vast resources of the Library of Congress in your teaching. Program includes: 5.5 Act 48 or NJ Professional Development hours, free lunch, free parking, plus a flash drive of immediate resources for your classroom!
