Delaware's Teaching Civics with Primary Sources project aspires to improve the quality of instruction in Delaware's social studies classrooms by raising awareness of resources available through the Library of Congress, by modeling how those resources can be accessed and integrated into lesson plans, and by providing professional development in the use of the Library of Congress and Teaching with Primary Sources websites.

Ten accomplished lesson writers develop standards-based civics lessons that integrate primary sources from the Library of Congress under the guidance of project staff. The authors and staff offer guided practice in the use of the lessons to 135 practicing teachers and 150 pre-service teachers. The project's lessons become part of the Delaware Recommended Curriculum for ongoing use statewide.
