Teaching with Primary Sources
at the University of the Arts

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 in the greater Philadelphia area. The program focuses on enhancing cross-curricular learning by incorporating arts-based primary resources into dynamic classroom experiences.

The TPS-UArts program leverages UArts faculty and local arts organization partners to utilize the vast cultural resources of our nation’s digital library for teachers and their students.  Course content explores arts-based primary sources, including design, music, photography, poetry, printmaking, theater and more. 
Non-credit course registration is free with a non-refundable materials fee.
Courses may be taken for graduate credit at a reduced rate.
