PRIMARY SOURCE DETECTIVES
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
In these question-driven explorations, excerpts from (or reproductions of) primary source documents help students assemble an understanding of the documents' historical context.
Who, what, where, when, and why questions head each chapter. For example, the civil rights book asks: What were civil rights, why did people march for them? What kind of people were they, where did they march, what happened during the marches and afterward, and why were the marches significant? Readers discover and become comfortable with primary sources such as letters, newspaper articles, and other historical documents that are regularly inserted throughout the text. Explanatory captions, sidebars, and concise but cohesive narratives link the sources and provide hints and tips that encourage further research.
