Library of Congress’ Teaching with Primary Sources Program
The Library of Congress’ Teaching with Primary Sources Program provides educators with professional development and support for utilizing the Library of Congress’ rich online repository of primary sources within an instructional program and/or activity.
Using primary sources within instructional activities provides learners with exciting pathways to enrich their critical and creative thinking skills. Primary sources provide educators with interdisciplinary, instructional opportunities to engage learners in understanding better the realities of the world in which they live.
Primary Sources are a tremendous asset in executing the Common Core state curriculum frameworks for all disciplines as well as developing interactive and engaging k-16 lesson plans.
