Teaching with Primary Sources Program at Rockford University


The Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Program at Rockford University produces a quarterly newsletter that focuses on our program’s events and news. We also highlight important information from the Library of Congress.

The TPS Journal is an online publication created by the Library of Congress Educational Outreach Division in collaboration with the TPS Educational Consortium. Published quarterly, each issue focuses on pedagogical approaches to teaching with Library of Congress digitized primary sources in K-12 classrooms.
