Updated Sharing Resources found by Learners in PBS TeacherLine’s Library of Congress course

PBS Teacherline’s course, Teaching with Primary Sources from the Library of Congress begins today (April 18), and I am grateful to facilitate this course!

This is a resource-rich course for educators, administrators, parents…anyone who wants to learn more about the Library of Congress and their resources. We also delve a bit into the topic of copyright, a timely topic at any time.

This post will be updated frequently as an archival record of the resources that we, as a class collective, discover as we explore the resources at the Library of Congresshttps://www.loc.gov/. Please feel free to join our participatory partnership- leave a comment, share a resource you find, and/or the way(s) you will include Library of Congress resources in your instructional practice.
