I recently received this e-mail about an opportunity for professional development. It looks very good. -JF
The Army Heritage Center Foundation, in partnership with the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources program, is offering a series of workshops for in-service and pre-service teachers. Sessions will include finding resources on the Library of Congress website, engaging students in primary source analysis, and integrating primary sources in the classroom through the National History Day in Pennsylvania program.
Through a grant from the Library of Congress TPS program the Foundation is able to offer $100 scholarships and $50 travel stipends to cover the cost for students to attend the workshops.
I have attached a flyer for the program. Students can also find more information and register online at http://www.armyheritage.org/education-and-programs/programs/conferences-and-workshops.html.
If you have any questions please email or call me at 717-258-1102.
Thank you, and have a happy and safe holiday season.
