The American Memory Fellows
Though the American Memory Fellows Program ended
in 2001, the Library of Congress sponsored 250 exemplary educators
in summer institutes in Washington, DC.
Workshops from these institutes are available for use in your
schools. The Fellows created (and "road tested")
Lessons that draw upon the Library of Congress online materials.
American Memory Fellows continue to share their knowledge locally

presentations, workshops, seminars, and written publications.
The Teaching with Primary Sources Program
The Teaching with Primary Sources Program works with colleges and other educational organizations to deliver professional development programs that help teachers use the Library of Congress' rich reservoir of digitized primary source materials to design challenging, high-quality instruction.
