EYEWITNESS TO THE PAST
Strategies for Teaching American History in Grades 5–12
Chapters outline the unique properties of six types of sources—diaries, travelogs, letters, newspapers, election speeches, and scrapbooks—and describe a sequence of activities for each that can be adapted to accommodate different content. Rubrics, plentiful sample writings, and illustrations guide teachers through the suggested methods and help to evaluate students’ assignments. Appendixes list resources for each type of primary source, as well as sample worksheets for analysis.
