Description:
Social studies – specifically, primary and secondary source analysis -- is especially effective in teaching students how to evaluate information critically and develop well-supported arguments. These skills are more important than ever in a society flooded with information, often of questionable reliability, and even elementary students are capable of learning them! Learn how to use guided analysis of sources with students in grades 3-5 to hook students on history while building their confidence in their abilities to interpret information for themselves. Applicable Grades: 3-5.
