Teaching with Primary Sources from the Library of Congress

Course Section Description:

This course helps educators utilize the more than 19 million resources and materials of the Library of Congress to create student engagement, build critical thinking skills, and enhance knowledge construction with primary sources. Gain a new understanding of how close contact with the library’s historical resources can provide young people with a strong sense of the past and a new understanding of the present.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.

Classroom Link-Access to students recommended. PBS Classroom Link courses ask learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available).

For assignments and evaluation details, see the full Syllabus.
