How I Use It
As a teacher who uses primary sources on a regular basis, I was able to have my students use this tool to locate documents from the founding era of America. Students were able to locate primary sources about the founding of the United States and documents that taught them about the American Revolutionary War.
My Take
I really enjoy this tool. I feel like it is easy for me to navigate but also that my students understood how to search for primary sources. I really like that you can browse for individual things but also browse by topic. Very helpful and convenient!
