***NOTE: Librarians are encouraged to bring teachers with them (teachers should sign up too!) to work collaboratively on an inquiry project which uses primary sources.***
Attend Librarian Days 2009, taking place January 30 and 31 at Metropolitan State College of Denver’s Auraria Campus in downtown Denver. During the conference, we will explore case studies in historical inquiry, focusing on several anniversaries that take place in 2009: The bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s birth; the sesquicentennial of the founding of Denver; and the centennial of the completion of the Colorado Governor’s Mansion.
Based on the 2007 American Association of School Librarians (AASL) learner standards, the theme for Librarian Days 2009 embodies these goals:
Inquire about history
Create resources for learning and knowledge
Participate in an innovative learning community
Grow as learners and professionals
Librarian Days 2009 features a variety of presenters and facilitators who will help us achieve our objectives. Participants will also contribute actively to the community’s learning through their facilitated work throughout the conference.
TPS-Colorado, in collaboration with the Governor’s Residence Preservation Fund, will host an “Evening at the Governor’s Residence” at the historic Boettcher Mansion Friday, January 30 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. Register early since space is limited for this special evening.
