Beginning Asynchronous Individualized Course of Study (BASICS)
This asynchronous online class provides educators with an overview of the digitized primary sources and teacher materials freely available through the Library of Congress web site, loc.gov, as well as promising practices for their successful use in the classroom.
Participants independently complete twelve TPS Tutorials and then reflect on and relate learnings to their unique classroom situations through electronic Discussion Board postings. A TPS facilitator provides feedback and suggestions for expanded classroom applications and additional resources. A Certificate of Completion will document twelve hours of continuing education.
