How I Use It
This is a great site for exploring and researching primary source documents. Students can use this as a resource for a project or homework assignment. My primary use is to find primary documents and teach students how to read, interpret, and analyze them.
My Take
One of the best sites for primary resources for any social studies teacher. Can serve as a guide to teacher or student led exploration of historical periods. Great resource to use when trying to teach students how to differentiate between different types of historical resources.
