About the 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.
