Description

Teaching with Primary Sources Program (TPS)

The Teaching with Primary Sources program has been the Library of Congress s premier educational outreach program. The goals of the program have included providing instructional materials, tools, education and professional development that enhance teachers ability to integrate digitized primary sources from the Library of Congress into instruction that builds student literacy, critical thinking skills, content knowledge and ability to conduct original research. Since the establishment of the Center for Learning, Literacy and Engagement in 2018, and the release of the Library s 2019-23 and 2024-2028 Strategic Plans, the TPS goals are both influencing and reflecting the Library s broader outreach goals. TPS Consortium members are valued as Connectors who help the Library achieve its vision of connecting to all Americans. www.loc.gov/teachers
