Susan Adams, library media specialist at Spring Valley, has been selected to attend one of four Library of Congress 2016 Summer Teacher Institutes. In this five-day program for K-12 educators, Library of Congress education specialists facilitate sessions modeling strategies for using primary sources to engage students, build critical thinking skills, and construct knowledge. Participants consider, discuss, and develop applications to their students, their classrooms, and school libraries. During the week, participants draw from among the millions of digitized primary sources in the Library’s collections to design and refine specific primary source activities to implement in classroom settings. Participants also have opportunities to meet experts within the Library and visit the Maps; Manuscripts; Prints & Photographs and other Reading Rooms to gather information and resources to use in developing their activities. Ms. Adams is looking forward to representing Richland Two and Spring Valley High School with pride.
