Starts: 3:00 pm
Ends: May 7, 2015 - 4:00 pm
Description: How can time-strapped teachers find and use free resources from the online collections of the Library of Congress? Join us for a discussion with an ESOL Teacher from Syracuse to understand how the Library of Congress supports teaching and learning at all grade and language proficiency levels. Library experts will share strategies on analyzing primary sources to enhance the development of critical and analytical thinking skills. The ESOL practitioner will share her experiences with how the primary sources can address CCSS – including practice with complex texts and academic language, the use of text-based evidence to support claims, and building knowledge through non-fiction resources.
