Library of Congress Early Literacy

Visit the Learning Page, from the Library of Congress, designed specifically for teachers. You will find everthing from lesson plans to professional development. A very unique feature of the Library of Congress’s resources for teachers is the American Memory Collection.

 

The Learning Page is designed to help educators use the American Memory Collections to teach history and culture. American Memory is an online archive of over 100 collections of rare and unique items important to America’s heritage. The collections contain more than 7 million primary source documents, photographs, films, and recordings that reflect the collective American memory. They are a treasure trove of unique personal items from another period in time – perhaps old records, letters with exquisite penmanship and arcane language, clothing, keepsakes, or faded photographs. These collections are ‘snapshots’ providing a glimpse into America’s past.
