Primary Source offers online, hybrid, and face-to-face seminars. The face-to-face courses feature scholarly presentations incorporating a variety of media, interactive teacher-led workshops modeling classroom and curriculum activities, and occasional field trips to museums and cultural sites. PDPs are included with most programs, and graduate credit is available for a fee for their 3-day seminar series.

Unless otherwise noted, courses take place at Primary Source in Watertown, Massachusetts.


Registration Process

Wellesley Public Schools has an annual membership with Primary Source through which the district is allotted seats in their courses. Since the number of seats is limited, pre-approval from the Assistant Superintendent of Teaching & Learning is required prior to registering.

Please be sure to submit a Professional Leave Request Form and enter your absence in Aesop if the course will take place during school hours. Please refer to the Professional Leave page for more information.
