(original letters, diaries, maps, photographs, motion pictures and
recorded sound materials) and the ways they can be used to enhance
education in the K-12 classroom. Articles about the program can be

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR 2001
AMERICAN MEMORY FELLOWS INSTITUTE
AT LIBRARY OF CONGRESS

The American Memory Fellows Program is an excellent opportunity for
outstanding teachers, librarians and media specialists to work with the
Library of Congress to understand better how primary sources can enrich
the learning experience of students in grades 4 through 12. This is a
yearlong professional development opportunity, the cornerstone of which
is the American Memory Fellows Institute, held in Washington at the
Library of Congress in two six-day sessions: July 15-20 or July 22-27,
2001.

The American Memory Fellows Institute sponsors 25 two-person teams of
exemplary grade 4-12 educators for their stay in Washington. Each
session will accommodate approximately 12 teams of 24 Fellows. Teams
will attend only one session; however, to be eligible for consideration,
teams must be available for both sessions. To apply, use the application
found online at <http://learning.loc.gov/learn/amfp>.
Applications must be postmarked by February 26, 2001.

American Memory Fellows Institute

During the six-day institute, Fellows will work with Library of Congress
staff and consultants, examine both actual and virtual primary source
artifacts photographs, maps, graphic arts, video, audio, documents and
texts plus learn strategies for working with these electronic primary
source materials. Participants will also develop sample teaching
materials that draw upon the American Memory online materials.

The Fellowship Year

Following the Institute, Fellows will continue to develop, refine and
test their teaching materials with other colleagues and students. These
teacher-created materials are then edited for presentation on the
Library of Congress Learning Page at <http://learning.loc.gov/learn/>.
Throughout the school year, Fellows participate in online discussion
groups. American Memory Fellows, as mentors to their professions, are
also asked to share their knowledge with other colleagues throughout the
nation at workshops and seminars or in writing.

Selection Criteria

The Library is seeking applications from two-member teams of humanities
teachers, librarians and media specialists who:

Have frequent access to and a high level of comfort using the World Wide
Web, e-mail and other technologies;

Have experience using primary sources to motivate students, promote
their critical thinking and help them connect history to their lives;

Are active leaders in their fields, or have the ability to disseminate
their expertise to teachers or librarians in their community and region;

Work with student populations that are diverse (e.g. by region, income,
race and ethnicity, language, ability, etc.).

If you meet these criteria, print out and complete the online
application at <http://learning.loc.gov/learn/amfp>. You may make
copies of the application for interested colleagues.

Remember, applications must be postmarked by Feb. 26, 2001. (No
email, fax or disk-based applications, please.) Notification letters to all
applicants will be mailed the week of April 23, 2001. Send inquiries to
Andrea Savada at [log in to unmask] or (202) 707-8148.
