Spring Teacher Professional Developments from the Brooklyn Collection

Brooklyn Collections logoThe Brooklyn Collection is pleased to announce two FREE professional development opportunities for teachers in spring 2014. The professional developments are open to all English Language Arts and Social Studies teachers who teach grades 4 - 12. See the Brooklynology blog post here for complete information.



Teachers: we’d love your opinion! Brooklyn Public Library will be hosting a free “Teacher Lab” this August to introduce teachers to a wide range of resources for practical use in the classroom. Please CLICK HERE to take this quick survey and tell us what you need from the public library to support your students’ learning.  All entries submitted by Friday, May 2nd will be entered into a drawing for a BPL drawstring backpack filled with new children’s or teen books!
