FREE Literacy Course for Educators

The Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) program at the University of the Arts encourages participants to become detectives — seeking out images, artifacts, music, playbills and more to bring subjects to life in the classroom. By analyzing primary sources from the Library of Congress, cultural organizations and artists who partner with TPS-UArts, we provide authentic experiences like no other!


Funded by a grant from the Library of Congress, TPS-UArts courses create professional development opportunities for K-12 educators that focus on teaching with primary sources in an arts context to enhance cross-curricular learning in all grades. Programming is FREE for non-credit and graduate credit is also available. Advance registration is required to reserve your spot - register now!


  • Literacy + Primary Sources - An Introduction for Teachers
    Mon - Fri: Aug 4 - Aug 8, 2014: 9:00 am - 5:30 pm
    at The University of the Arts
    Effective teachers integrate literacy-based experiences into their classrooms to help students become better readers, writers, communicators  and learners. In this course, we look at the act of writing as a living art form that can engage students as they bring imagery, sounds, meaning and expression alive through their words and the words of others. Each participant receives a copy of the Library of Congress book Poetry 180.
