Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) at Waynesburg University is gearing up for TPS Level I Online Institute, a free professional development opportunity featuring methods and materials from the Library of Congress.
The Institute will be held on four Thursday evenings from Sept. 17 through Oct. 8. Each session will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
All educators are encouraged to participate in the Institute, during which they will explore online resources by expanding their understanding of the Library of Congress and discovering effective strategies for teaching with primary sources.
Participants in the course can expect to receive an overview of the Library of Congress TPS Program and instructions on how to select and use primary sources from www.loc.gov. They will also learn how to align classroom activities with Common Core Standards and how to implement strategies and methods useful for teaching with primary sources, independent reading and reflection on classroom practices and synchronous project development and collaboration.
Participants have the opportunity to earn up to 15 PDE Act 48 Activity Hours. Spots may be reserved by registering at https://forms.waynesburg.edu/machform/view.php?id=371467.
