Whether it’s for a history report or science project; for better understanding of an historic event, the way a machine works, or a how a mathematician or scientist makes use of a certain concept or formula, primary sources–being able to learn directly from individuals who have lived the history or do the work in the laboratory—are an exceptional resource to increase student understanding. Educate.Today believes in the power of primary sources to inspire your students and illuminate their learning, and the contents of our extensive library of primary source videos reflects that belief.
Full of interesting activity ideas and lesson plans as well as reading lists and additional supplemental resources, this tool kit provides strategies to connect your students to individuals in our video resources who are living the curriculum they are studying in class. Additional primary source activity idea and lesson plan Teacher Tools can be found with many videos throughout the Educate.Today website.
