Educators from around the country
Provide educators with an opportunity to engage in discovery learning and to develop strategies to teach about Abraham Lincoln's presidency and the age in which he lived with Library of Congress primary sources.
The Library of Congress, home to the Abraham Lincoln papers, celebrates the bicentennial of the president’s birth with an exhibition titled With Malice Toward None: The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Exhibition—an exhibition on view at the Library from February 12 – May 8, 2009. The exhibition will chart Lincoln’s growth from prairie lawyer to preeminent statesman and address the monumental issues he faced, including slavery and race, the dissolution of the Union, and the Civil War.
Participants will learn to incorporate images, manuscripts, letters, photographs, maps, and poetry, and will engage in activities that will help make this era in our country’s history “come alive” for students through hand-on activities.
Registration is limited to the first 20 applicants for any date. Use form below.
