Teaching with Primary Sources: Civil Rights The Library of Congress is now accepting applications for a Summer Teacher Institute for K-12 educators to be held in conjunction with a new exhibit focusing on the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The week-long program will focus on strategies for teaching about the topic with primary sources' photographs, manuscripts, oral histories, songs, and more from the Library's collections.

Taking place July 28-August 1 at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., the professional development will provide educators with tools and resources to effectively integrate primary sources into K-12 classroom teaching, with an emphasis on student engagement, critical thinking, and construction of knowledge. The Institute is open to teachers and school librarians across grade and content areas with teaching responsibilities related to civil rights. (Previous participants in a Library of Congress Summer Institute are not eligible.)

Tuition and materials are provided at no cost. Selected participants are responsible for transportation to and from Washington, D.C. and any required overnight accommodations.

Applications are due March 24 and require a letter of recommendation. Read more about this and other Library of Congress summer teacher programs and apply now:
