Abstract

The Library of Congress’ Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) Program’s mission is to help teachers, at all levels, use the Library of Congress’ vast collection of digitized primary sources to enrich classroom instruction. To further this mission, the Teaching with Primary Sources Program at the University of Central Florida (TPS-UCF) staff works collaboratively with numerous entities across the state to advance the ongoing work of the members of the TPS Educational Consortium. The TPS-UCF program focuses on the design, implementation, and assessment of a collaborative model for professional development that centers on integrating primary sources into the K-12 curriculum. The end goal is to provide professional development resources and teaching materials to a variety of educators to advance the work of the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) initiative.
