Skills: What do we want students (citizens) to able to do? Analyze perspectives in primary and secondary sources, and evaluate the credibility of information in historical and contemporary sources.
Today I am sharing three short videos that can help teachers sharpen students' skills in source analysis:
1. Primary vs. Secondary Sources
2. The Guardian Commercial: Points of View
3. How to Choose Your News
In the classroom, you may want to pause the clip after each point of view is shown. Have students make inferences about what is happening based on the point of view they have just seen.
