EXAMINING THE EVIDENCE
Seven Strategies for Teaching with Primary Sources
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
So teachers can help students think critically about primary sources, this book succinctly suggests seven strategies.
Students need to decide what they are looking at, determine its purpose and audience, look for bias, make a close examination of the source itself, find more information about the source, consider their own role in the interaction, and compare a variety of sources. Powerful photos and texts are included along with practice lessons keyed to Common Core State Standards, and lists of additional primary sources on the Internet are provided.
