8 Primary Sources
Primary sources breathe life into history and capture students' curiosity about past events. Provide students with a deeper and more comprehensive view of historical events through maps, letters, photographs, political cartoons, and more!
Students will participate in the constructive process of history by studying primary source documents. Viewing historic photographs, handling facsimiles of famous documents, and reading the comments and opinions of those in the past prepare students for document-based assessments.
Primary sources provide opportunities for students to compare and contrast information, learn to identify biases, determine the validity and reliability of sources, and look at current issues through a historical lens.
