The Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) Micro-credentials were developed by Citizen U® in conjunction with the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Partner Program and in collaboration with TPS Consortium members.
The TPS micro-credentials are free for NEA members and $75 for non-members. Citizen U has a number of vouchers available for non-members. To learn more, contact us.
In addition to the micro-credential badges and digital portfolios, educators can typically also receive local/state certification of professional development credit towards license renewal. Graduate credit may also be possible for a supplemental fee.
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. To support all educators, we offer a Personal Learning Community. Simply click to join the TPS Teachers Network, then join the TPS Micro-credentials group.
