Funded by a grant from the Library of Congress, the Teaching with Primary Sources Program at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (TPS SIUE) offers free professional development opportunities to current and future K-12th grade educators on the SIUE campus and at school sites to counties in southern Illinois, surrounding Edwardsville.
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. Learn more about the Library's Teaching with Primary Sources Program and other resources available to teachers at www.loc.gov/teachers.
The TPS SIUE program works to achieve the above mission by offering professional development to K-12th grade educators through a variety of events in helping with the use of the Library's digitized primary sources to engage students, develop their critical thinking skills and construct knowledge.
