Teaching with Primary Sources Mississippi

Teaching with Primary Sources Program at Mississippi State University offers free professional development opportunities to current and future educators.

Teaching with Primary Sources Mississippi initially received grant support to provide free professional development from the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Midwest Region Program, coordinated by Illinois State University.

In 2016, Drs. Kenneth V. Anthony, Nicole C. Miller, and Paul E. Binford of the Department of Curriculum, Instruction, & Special Education (the College of Education), in partnership with Starkville Oktibbeha Consolidated School District (SOSD), were awarded a grant from the Library of Congress to develop a social studies curriculum, which infuses instruction with digitized primary sources in grades 3 through 12.  Selected SOCSD teachers will have the opportunity to participate in professional development related to the use of primary sources in instruction and receive technology to support the development and implementation of lessons for their students.
