STEM/STEAM Curriculum Resource: Spotlight on the Library of Congress

The Library of Congress consistently delivers high-quality and timely content for classroom and homeschool use. The resource spotlight of this blog post encourages conversations with students on their personal spending. The authentic, primary resource “hook” are receipts with history references. Among the most interesting are a 1861 receipt showing President Lincoln’s monetary gift contribution to a monument in honor of the early Plymouth Rock settlers.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ April 12

“When we intentionally respond to the diverse needs of our students, we are differentiating the product, process or content of learning according to the learning style, interest or readiness of our students. A wealth of research suggests that by framing learning with student interests in mind, teachers can increase student motivation and learning” (National Council of Teachers for English, 2015)
