Library of Congress Resources
The Library of Congress offers classroom materials and professional development to help teachers effectively use primary sources from the Library’s vast digital collections in their teaching.
The Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) Eastern Region program at Waynesburg University supports K-12 education by offering free professional development and resources to educators across the Eastern Region.
School districts, universities, and other educational organizations may apply for grants of up to $20,000 to incorporate TPS materials and methods into their existing education and professional development programs for pre and in-service teachers, and other K-12 educators.
