How I Use It
Because this site verbalizes the primary sources, students who are struggling readers can become fully engaged with higher level topics and concepts. My students enjoyed discussing the topics and were able to make connections to current events. There are supplemental materials that may be used for discussion or written work either individually or whole class that invite higher level thinking.
My Take
I liked that the primary sources are verbalized which is especially helpful for my special education students. They can hear the information and then discuss it either verbally or in written form. More visuals of the topic would be helpful.
