TPS Spotlight: Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Program

Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources program

The mission of the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) program is to: build awareness of the Library’s educational initiatives; provide content that promotes the effective educational use of the Library’s resources; and offer access to and promote sustained use of the Library’s educational resources.

The Library achieves this mission through collaborations between the Library and the K‐12 educational community across the United States. The program contributes to the quality of education by helping teachers use the Library’s digitized primary sources to engage students, develop their critical thinking skills and construct knowledge.

Learn more about the Library’s TPS program and other resources available to teachers at www.loc.gov/teachers.

The Barat Education Foundation has been a part of the TPS program since 2004. Members of the TPS Educational Consortium assist in the development and dissemination of the TPS program by delivering professional development and academic courses, designing curriculum and apps/online interactives using primary sources from the Library’s collections, and conducting research on the classroom use of primary sources.
