How in the World Can I Use Primary Sources?
Once you've found the primary source documents you need, do you know how you might use them in your classroom? In this webinar, we will look at a list of questions you can use to get students really looking at the documents and critically thinking about where the documents came from, who created the documents, how the documents were intended to be used, and how they compare to secondary sources. Join Melissa Edwards as she discusses ways to encourage students to begin asking questions about the documents. In addition, she will show a few quick ways to promote and assess critical thinking and analysis skills using these primary source documents. Although not required, you may also want to view a related webinar, "How in the World Can I Find Primary Sources?," which explores how to find primary sources.
