Funded by a grant from the Library of Congress, the Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) program at the University of the Arts 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.
Discover the basics you’ll need to effectively understand and use the vast resources of the Library of Congress in your teaching. Learn how to differentiate between primary and secondary sources, navigate and access primary source items from the Library of Congress, and discover the different formats primary sources have — all to help students explore the ways people have documented their stories throughout history. You’ll discover sources that use the lenses of arts artifacts such as photographs, writings and imagery to enhance student learning in a range of subject areas and grade levels.
