Science Teaching with Embedded Primary Sources (STEPS) Project

Help your students step back in time and explore the history of science through the Library of Congress’ collection of primary sources. In this two-day, face-to-face workshop, participants will learn how to find, evaluate, and use historical primary sources from the Library of Congress in their science lesson planning. Participants will develop and revise an interdisciplinary science lesson plan or course module using the Library’s Teaching with Primary Sources materials.

Registration Deadline Extended to September 7, 2021

Resources for Teaching Science with Primary Sources

The TPS Teachers Network brings together teachers with a shared interest in improving instructional practice and impacting student learning through Library of Congress primary sources. 

Everyday Mysteries will help you get the answers to many of life’s most interesting questions through scientific inquiry. In addition, we will introduce you to the Library of Congress’ rich collections in science and technology.

The STEPS Project is sponsored in part by the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Midwest Region Program, located at Illinois State University. Content created and featured in partnership with the TPS Midwest Region does not indicate an endorsement by the Library of Congress.
