About the TPS at MSU Denver Program
Funded by a grant from the Library of Congress, the Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) program at MSU Denver promotes the use of primary sources in instruction by offering FREE professional development opportunities for K-12 educators (in-service and pre-service) across the state.
Unlock the Power of Primary Sources
The raw materials of history breathe realism and immediacy into learning. Housed, protected and now digitized by the Library, such primary sources are available and free to anyone.
This vast collection is a treasure for educators and students at all levels to explore, rather than the domain of top scholars and archivists alone. Simply put, teachers who use primary sources catapult students into high-level thinking and meet the demands of standards-based education in new and creative ways. The virtual doors to the Library of Congress are open. Let us show you what’s possible. Together we can do great things for ourselves, our peers and the students in our lives.
