Bush Symposium will feature a guest speaker, Education Specialists from the Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Clinton, and George W. Bush Presidential Libraries, and original primary source materials from each library will be featured with the emphasis on items teachers can readily use in the classroom to supplement materials from textbooks and other sources. These items are not usually found in materials available to teachers.
Cost of the symposium is $50 and includes all materials, a copy of primary sources, and breakfast and lunch for each day. Space is limited so register early. Up to 13 hours of CEU credit available.
Primarily Teaching July 23-27, 2012
This workshop provides a varied program of lectures, demonstrations, analysis of documents, independent research, and group work that introduces teachers to the holdings and organization of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum. Participants will learn how to do research in historical records, create classroom material from records, and present documents in ways that sharpen students’ skills and enthusiasm for history, social studies, and the humanities. Each participant selects and prepares to research a specific topic, searches the topic in the records of the LBJ Library, and develops a teaching unit that can be presented in the classroom.
Due to limited Reading Room space, the number of participants is limited to 10 persons. Participants will be registered in the order the registration forms are received. Texas Teachers may elect to receive 6 hours credit for Gifted/Talented training or up to 40 hours of CEU credit. Graduate credit from a major university is available for an additional fee.
Inside the Archives
This workshop is designed to be used by schools and school districts to give teachers an opportunity to conduct research in the textual archives of the LBJ Library and learn how the Library can be utilized to enhance classroom activities and learning.
Suggestion: If ten teachers from a single school or school district each select a topic, that group can create a unit of study to be used by other teachers in the district/school. Texas Teachers may elect to receive 6 hours credit for Gifted/Talented training or up to 40 hours of CEU credit.
