Primary and Secondary Sources through Video
I need a streaming video explaining primary vs. secondary resources. Please help!
You’ve come to the right place! Here are several high-quality online videos that teach about primary and secondary sources—and historical thinking more broadly—to get you started.
Watch Teachinghistory.org's introductory video on historical thinking to learn about primary sources and strategies for analyzing them.
Historians and educators working through the University of Wisconsin, Whitewater, have created materials on teaching historical thinking, including an introductory video that explores strategies for analyzing historical evidence and learning about the past. The video shows these strategies in action in elementary and middle-school classrooms.
If you are looking for visuals or print materials, why not start by downloading Teachinghistory.org's free historical thinking poster?
