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.
What You'll Learn
You will learn how to integrate inquiry learning with primary sources into instruction across grades and disciplines using a variety of frameworks and strategies.
