Primary Source Analysis Tools: Observe, Reflect, Question
Greetings from TPSNVA (Teaching with Primary Sources, Northern Virginia),
If you've taken one of our workshops or courses, you have probably used the Primary Source Analysis Tool, a simple but powerful approach to analyzing primary sources. The following are customized versions of the Teachers Guide that you may find useful, as well as these suggestions:
- Choose at least two or three primary sources that support the learning objectives and are
accessible to students.
- Consider how students can compare these items to other primary and secondary
- Identify an analysis tool or guiding questions that students will use to analyze the primary sources
