The Montana Center for Inclusive Education is sponsoring a Teaching with Primary Sources workshop June 11-12, 2018, 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
A $100 travel stipend will be available for all participants, who will also earn 12 renewal units.
Here’s the description, taken from their brochure:
Immerse yourself in the rich history of your local area. You are invited to participate in a professional development opportunity through the Library of Congress. This professional development will provide “hands on” exploration of the Library of Congress and Montana using local resources.
This two-day workshop is designed for those individuals who have participated in the TPS programs since the start of the school year, and for those who would like to learn about using primary sources in the classroom. Participants will learn how to navigate the Library of Congress and develop student engagement, and learning strategies for using primary sources to engage students.
Presenters: Ruth Ferris and Kathi Hoyt are experienced trainers in the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources program. They have both presented throughout Montana and beyond. Both are librarians in the Billings Public Schools, and are Indian Education for All presenters for MRESA3.
