High school library specialist attends summer teacher institute

Pam Middlemas, a library media specialist at Grand Junction High School, participated in a Library of Congress summer teacher institute in Washington. D.C.

During the five-day program, Middlemas and other educators worked with Library of Congress educational specialists and subject matter experts to learn practices for using primary sources in the classroom. Participants developed primary source-based teaching strategies to take back to their school districts, apply in their classrooms and pass along to colleagues. Participants also explored the digital versions of historical artifacts and documents available on the Library of Congress Web site.

Participants in the summer teacher institutes include library media specialists, classroom teachers and school administrators involved in kindergarten through 12th grade education. The participants come from many different states and represent large metropolitan school districts as well as smaller, rural districts.
