Exploring the "Raw Materials of History"

Exploring primary sources or the "raw materials of history" provides students with an opportunity to examine the past free from the interpretations of others.  
(Library of Congress)

The following Google presentation has been created to explore strategies and resources for teaching and learning with primary sources. It also includes:
  • strategies to support students to analyse primary sources 
  • support for using analysis tools and Google docs for collaboration
  • links to Google research and search tools for locating and organising data and information 
  • support for creating and integrating Learning Paths in Digistore
The intention is to revisit and add to this resource in response to feedback and the evolution of further resources and web tools.
