The Library of Congress is now accepting applications for its week-long
Summer Institutes for K-12 educators. Held at the Library of Congress in
Washington, D.C., these professional development events provide educators
with tools and resources to effectively integrate primary sources into K-12
classroom teaching, with an emphasis on student engagement, critical
thinking, and construction of knowledge.
