Many of the posts on this blog suggest having students record their observations and thoughts on a primary source analysis tool. The Library of Congress recently launched an interactive online version with built-in sample questions to offer students guidance and to prompt further observation, reflective thinking, and questioning.
In addition to offering prompts, the new analysis tool has custom options to email, print, or download for future reference. The email and print options, accessible from the bottom of the page, include spaces for recording information about the primary source, the students name, date, and class period, if desired.
Take a look! Then please add a comment to let us know what you think.
