Teaching with Primary Sources Grant Program

The Library of Congress's Teaching with Primary Sources Program works with an educational consortium of schools, universities, libraries, and foundations to help teachers use the Library’s vast collection of digitized primary sources to enrich classroom instruction.

Regional grantees receive up to $20,000 to incorporate TPS methods and materials into existing programs for teachers. Grantees have used these funds to undertake projects such as including a TPS focus in curriculum, creating TPS-based teaching materials, or conducting a TPS workshop or course, etc.

"The Case for Ending Slavery" is sponsored in part by the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Eastern Region Program, coordinated by Waynesburg University. Visit the Teaching with Primary Sources Eastern Region web page to learn more about additional professional development activities and funding opportunities. The Library of Congress website showcases projects and events offered by partners across the United States.
