Our professional learning opportunities introduce K-12 educators to fascinating local history topics while providing resources and skills you can immediately utilize in your classroom. 

Practice incorporating primary sources and non-fiction texts into your lesson plans, learn techniques for using archival resources to fulfill Next Generation Standards in Social Studies and ELA, and develop new methods for increasing student engagement with local history topics.

The Brooklyn Public Library is a New York State Education Department (NYSED) sponsor of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) credit. K-12th grade NYS educators may earn CTLE credit toward the 100 hours requirement from attending Brooklyn Connections professional learning events. Event listings will note if they are CTLE eligible.

If you have an accessibility requirement, please let us know by checking the appropriate box while registering for our professional learning opportunities and a staff member will reach out with accessibility options prior to the event.
