Rep. TJ Cox to Host Interactive Webinar with the Library of Congress for Local Educators
May 20, 2020
Today, Rep. TJ Cox announced he will be hosting a webinar with the Library of Congress on May 21st at 3 pm for local educators.
The Library of Congress has millions of primary sources available for free online. Teaching with primary sources is a powerful way to help students engage with content, build their critical thinking skills, and construct knowledge.
"We should be making as many resources available as possible to our Central Valley educators who continue to deliver lessons remotely despite the ongoing public health crisis," said Rep. TJ Cox. "The Library of Congress has an array of online tools that teachers can add to their skill set as online instruction continues in school districts throughout the Central Valley."
This is an opportunity for educators in California’s 21st Congressional District to discover and discuss the most effective techniques for using Library of Congress primary sources in the classroom. Teaching strategies, outstanding primary sources, lesson plans, teacher resources, and current thinking on effective classroom practice are all open for discussion.
