Examining the Evidence: Seven Strategies for Teaching with Primary Sources

Educators are being challenged as never before to invite reality into the classroom and allow students to explore it. This book will help you meet the challenge. Primary sources are the very documents that history is made of, the images that science is based on, the raw material of our lives. They are also excellent tools to teach the critical thinking skills required by the Common Core State Standards. This book reveals in detail the strategies you can use to make primary sources come alive for your students and to enhance visual literacy, using fascinating photographs and powerful primary source texts.

Sam Wineburg - Professor of Education and History, Standford University

"The book you are holding demands that we learn to see differently, to weigh possibilities, to question more precisely, to argue for our interpretation, and justify our interpretation cogently and convincingly. Primary sources are means to a higher end—one that applies not only to the social studies, but to every single subject in the curriculum. The book you are holding helps you teach students how to think." - Sam Wineburg
