Teaching with Primary Sources
The Teaching with Primary Sources Micro-credentials were developed by Citizen U® in conjunction with the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) Partner Program and in collaboration with TPS Consortium members. The TPS micro-credentials are free for NEA members and $75 for non-members.
While you have 6 months to complete an individual TPS Micro-credential, we recommend completing it within 3 months. Additionally, educators with no foundational training in teaching inquiry with primary sources from the Library of Congress may find it helpful to begin with the Inquiry with Primary Sources micro-credential.
We encourage all educator participants to join our Personal Learning Community. Click to join the TPS Teachers Network, then join the TPS Micro-credentials group. Educators will receive the corresponding NEA-TPS badge upon successful completion of each TPS micro-credential as well as a certificate from Citizen U certifying completion of 15 Continuing Education Units. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
