Applications Being Accepted for the 1999 Educators Institute

The Library of Congress and the National Digital Library announce
the third Educators Institute, which will be held in Washington, DC
 from July 18-23, 1999.  The summer institute is the cornerstone of
the American Memory Fellows Program, and it focuses on using
primary source materials in education.  Applications are now being
accepted and must be postmarked by March 6, 1999.

American Memory is an on-line digital library
<http://memory.loc.gov/>, which is comprised of unique and rare
documents, photographs, sound recordings, motion pictures, maps,
and other media that tell the story of American history and culture.
Its 42 collections provide materials that educators have found
helpful to compliment history, social studies, and language arts
curricula.  Also on-line at the Library of Congress Web site is The
Learning Page <http://learning.loc.gov/>, which is designed to
provide navigational and contextual help to teachers and students
getting started with primary sources and the American Memory
collections.

The Educators Institute is a six-day hands-on workshop in which
50 participants work in both large and small groups and share ideas
on using primary sources in the curriculum.  They learn on-line
search skills, background and context for using archival collections
in the classroom, and strategies for integrating web-based material
into teaching.  Each two-person team will be responsible for
developing an original lesson plan, unit, or activity that draws
upon the Library of Congress American Memory collections.  In
addition, each participant will be required to participate in both a
pre-conference and a post-conference discussion listserv.  Each
 participant will receive a $1,000 honorarium and round-trip
transportation to Washington, DC.

Middle and high school teachers, librarians, media specialists,
technology coordinators, and curriculum specialists are invited to
apply for this summer institute.  Applications will be accepted from
two-person teams of educators who demonstrate:

        a creative, thoughful project idea;
        experience in humanities teaching;
        ability to work in an on-line environment;
        collaborative work habits;
        professional leadership.

To apply, download an application package from The Learning
Page <http://learning.loc.gov/> Or,  call Karen Billett (202/707-3847)
to request a paper copy. For more information, please call Susan
Veccia, Project Manager, Educational Services (202/707-6151).
