Primary vs. Secondary Sources

Explore the differences between primary and secondary resources with this plan. First, learners will categorize a list of resources into two groups: primary or secondary. Then, the teacher reads different examples and has learners guess if the author was present during the event or if the account is being interpreted by an outsider. Finally, they complete a sheet that reinforces this knowledge. A very thorough lesson!
