Birmingham-Bloomfield Preschool Directory
The Library has a terrific selection of circulating posters for use in your classroom. Topics include science, social studies, famous people and more. A collection of 40 colorful posters made available through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities in cooperation with the American Library Association, is a part of this group. These “Picturing America” posters will highlight American history lessons and many other subjects across the curriculum. There is a Teachers Resource Book full of information and activities related to the “Picturing America” posters located in the Teaching Collection for use in the library. In addition, there is a brochure listing all 40 titles in the set. Posters may be checked out for three weeks, and may be renewed.
