Discovering Primary Sources
If you teach senior years history, it might be worthwhile for you to check out this site. It allows you to create online activities that students can work on to discover, compare, interact with, and make connections using primary sources. I haven't looked into this fully, but found a link to it on Twitter. It could be a great way to engage students while instructing them on the importance of first-hand historical perspectives. Peruse Docs Teach to learn more about this interactive opportunity. If you'd like a little more background information about how this site works and some other alternatives for primary source instructional opportunities, please visit this webpage.
