Congressman, college to host May 10

Web-based Resources for Teachers Forum

U.S. Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin and TU's College of Education want to help teachers navigate their way through the vast—and sometimes daunting—array of federal Web-based resources.

“Our nation is only as strong as its children, and our job is to ensure that they are getting the best possible education," says Cardin."That means providing teachers with the resources they need so they can do their jobs in the most effective way possible. This forum will help teachers and future teachers learn about new and creative ways to reach children."

The jointly sponsored Web-based Resources for Teachers Forum will take place Monday, May 10, at 7 p.m. in the Minnegan Room in the Field House at Johnny Unitas® Stadium. Admission is free and open to the public.

Rep. Cardin will speak about the Master Teachers' Bill and

E-Rate. Also presenting will be:

Meredith Peterson, reference librarian, Congressional Research Service, Library of Congress

Tom Proffitt, acting dean, College of Education

Paul Jones, chairperson, Department of Reading, Special Education and Instructional Technology

Tricia Ryan, lecturer, Department of Reading, Special Education and Instructional Technology 

Among the 12 exhibitors will be the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Aquarium in Baltimore, Smithsonian Institution Center for Education and Museum Studies, Space Telescope Science Institute and Patuxent National Wildlife Center.
