Overview

Asking questions, making connections, and creating comparisons are concepts that repeat throughout the Common Core Standards. In order to compare and contrast a firsthand and secondhand account of the same event in history, primary source documents will be needed. But do you know where you or your students can find those? Join Melissa Edwards as she explores how to search for primary sources using the Library of Congress site as well as other possible resources.

Although not required, you may also want to view a related webinar, "How in the World Can I Use Primary Sources?," which explores how to use primary sources.
