Join us for the 2024 Paideia Conference in Malibu

TPS Seminar Plans

This collection of Seminar Plans was created by members of the National Paideia Center staff and National Faculty as well as teachers and facilitators from the District of Columbia Department of Social Studies, in collaboration with the Teaching Primary Sources (TPS) program and the Library of Congress. They are intended to be used by adult educators across the United States to inspire candid and empathetic dialogue about racial identity and social justice. Our goal in creating this collection is to help educators learn to talk about race in a way that increases our mutual understanding and contributes to equity in public education.


You can view a list of the plans and download them here.

The TPS Regional program promotes the widespread, sustained and effective use of primary sources from the Library of Congress in K-12 classrooms by increasing access to the TPS program.

School districts, universities, cultural institutions, library systems and other educational organizations may apply for grants of up to $20,000 to incorporate TPS materials and methods into their existing education and professional development programs for pre and in-service teachers, librarians, and other K-12 educators.

Content created and featured in partnership with the TPS program does not indicate an endorsement by the Library of Congress.
