STPS 600 Selected Topics Primary Sources



3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Funded by a grant from the Library of Congress, the Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) program
at the University of the Arts creates professional development opportunities for K-12
educators that focus on teaching with primary sources in an arts context to enhance
cross-curricular areas in all grade levels. Teaching with primary sources allows educators to
design student-centered learning experiences focused on the development of critical skills and
building content knowledge. Educators will examine primary sources from the Library of
Congress and local collections. Those sources will be used in combination with site visits and
studio projects to develop lesson plans that include inquiry-based activities for use in the
K-12 classroom.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing
Studies.

This course may be repeated for credit.
