LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky teacher has been chosen to participate in a teaching program at the Library of Congress this month.

Laura Shea is an educator at the De Paul School in Louisville. She was chosen from among more than 400 applicants for the Teaching with Primary Sources Summer Teacher Institute starting Monday.

The Library of Congress says participants in the five-day program work with library education specialists and subject matter experts. They also learn about digitized historical artifacts and documents available on the library's website.

Classroom materials, teaching tools and strategies for teaching with primary sources are available to educators at the library's site for teachers, http://www.loc.gov/teachers .
