Primary Source of the Day: A Warm Up Activity

--Amy Trenkle

"Almost every class period, I begin with a primary source." The teacher uses a short quote; a photocopy of a photograph, newspaper illustration or cartoon; or an actual object to spark interest. Such a primary source can serve as a review of yesterday's lesson, a transition to today's lesson, or an overture to a whole new topic. Examples are given of sources and how they are used.
