Speaking in New England about Common Core Plus the Library of Congress and Primary Sources

The Common Core State Standards are on the minds of many folks these days. I'll be speaking at a wonderful event hosted by SDE, Staff Development for Educators, in New Hampshire on April 8 and 9 about reaching those standards through centers, great read-alouds, and writing projects. I'd love it if any of my local followers stopped in to say hello! There will be other terrific speakers there as well, covering a wide variety of topics, not just Common Core. Here's the link to the brochure if you want to check it out!

As I was preparing some handouts for the event I came across a tidbit from the Library of Congress that helps you help students understand and use primary sources. There's a link to the Library of Congress' collection of primary sources and their student analysis guide on the Links page above. Check it out.
