New Lessons

AAPI Perspectives & Experiences
Students analyze primary sources, investigate ways that Asian American and Pacific Islanders engaged as civic actors in U.S. history, and consider how art and literature provide insight to AAPI perspectives and experiences. After, students create a digital artifact that reveals how Asian American and Pacific Islanders have engaged civically and contributed to U.S. culture.
What’s the Problem with Patents?
Students analyze 20th-century primary sources to scrutinize patents over time. Next, students are introduced to the subject of bioethics and investigate contemporary biological patents. After, students participate in a debate about the ethics of medical research and patents.

Teaching with Primary Sources
Micro-Credential Library

Citizen U is excited to announce the official launch of the TPS Micro-credential Library, an extension of the National Education Association Micro-credential Library. The first four micro-credentials will be available shortly; descriptions of each are available on the Citizen U website. The TPS micro-credentials are free for NEA members and $75 for non-members. School districts interested in enrolling a large group of educators consisting of some or all non-NEA members should contact Citizen U. While the micro-credentials are asynchronous, we have created a dedicated TPS Micro-credentials group on the TPS Teachers Network to offer support for educators.
