Welcome to the Library of Congress Kalpa Course

"The Library of Congress: Your Primary Source for e-Learning." I was part of the a group of 20 teachers who were trained in using Library of Congress Resources. Let me be your Library of Congress Mentor. Earn up to 3 KALPA hours.--Barbara Clark

Did you know that teachers can access over 13 million digitized primary sources? Find out how to access Michigan Material by state standards; give your students access to puzzles, writing contests, and family literacy activities; find teacher lessons, historical photos, historical documents and more. Attend the first session and earn an additional KALPA hour on your own time. The session will focus 3 major components: 1) location of digitized materials to enhance current lessons with LC Materials, 2) how LOC primary resources can be used to promote inquiry-based learning, and 3) access to professional development modules and supplemental material.
