Teaching with Photographs and Prints

Library of Congress



Education Specialists from the Library of Congress are offering a free webinar to model primary source analysis strategies for educators and to discuss the impact this can have on instruction.
By analyzing a visual image, students can discover more than just the image’s content-they can also begin to explore its context. Analyzing images lets students discover new topics for exploration, and also build visual literacy skills that they can apply not only to primary sources, but to anything they see.
Education experts from the Library will discuss the power of images, model how to analyze photographs and prints, and demonstrate how to find images from the Library of Congress.


Date:  Thursday, September 25, 2014

Time: 7pm ET / 4pm PT

Open to: all NHD teachers, students, parents, and coordinators
