What the Library of Congress Has for Teachers: Primary Sources and Tools and Techniques to Use Them | Teaching with the Library of Congress | Sheila's Edtech | Scoop.it

Primary sources are more important to teachers than ever before, and the Library of Congress makes it easy not only to find great primary sources, but also to quickly and effectively use them in your teaching.

The Library is one of the world’s largest sources of free primary sources, with more than 30 million items available via easy searching at www.loc.gov. U.S. history, English and language arts, science, world history and cultures–there are primary sources for almost every discipline.

If this happens in the early years of learning it will not be such an issue at the tertiary level where plagiarism is still a real problem!

A number of great points that are both practical and theoritical in terms of how to assist students' understanding of digital literacy skills, preparing them for the future, increasing their understanding of what the future might bring!
