Introducing the TPS Collective Teaching Tools Library! (June 2020)
A free collection of lesson plans, exercises, activities, guides, and much more.

This shared community library is a group on Zotero. Zotero account holders can add, edit, and remove items in this library. (Learn more and register here; download the desktop version and browser connectors here.) We welcome you to join the Zotero group and help build a library of resources for the TPS Community. We are just beginning to gather these and welcome new additions. Don’t want to mess with Zotero? Send us your contribution here and we’ll take care of the rest!

Something about how the items below are pulled into the page, but for better searching (and browsing) to use the Zotero interface?

We’ll also want to figure out a default sort, what fields are displayed to each item, and set up some sidebar faceting (or similar approach) like on the Bibliography page.
