Welcome to the Teaching With Primary Sources Program at Rockford College
The Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) program at Rockford College supports teachers in their efforts to incorporate primary-source, inquiry-based learning to enhance the achievement of students in kindergarten through grade 12. The program is conducted through undergraduate and graduate classes leading to teacher certification at Rockford College, including student teaching.
The program also provides free in-service workshops for K-12 educators in partner school districts to expand the community of educators using primary-source, inquiry-based learning experiences. The program also identifies, encourages and supports participating college faculty who provide TPS professional development to area K-12 educators.
The Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources program collaborates with school districts, universities, libraries, and foundations to help teachers use the Library's vast collection of digitized primary sources to enrich their classroom instruction.
