What the Library of Congress Has for Teachers: Primary Sources and Tools and Techniques to Use Them | Teaching with the Library of Congress | Information Literacy | 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.

"Among the many benefits, audiobooks:

reinforce literacy skills.supplement reading instruction to develop a positive attitude towards literature.develop understanding of content area material when decoding or other literacy skills are delayed.model the appropriate use of oral vocabulary, fluent reading, and use of phonics.bring literature from the classroom to home and back on a portable device."

And a great infographic to go with it!
