Using Primary Source-based Inquiry to Transform Teaching and Learning
When teachers use primary sources to create inquiry-based lessons they are transforming the way students learn. Primary sources have a unique way of engaging students in a profoundly personal manner and when used to support inquiry-driven instruction they entice students to ask questions and seek additional evidence through research. Primary source-based inquiry also helps students develop essential analysis and critical thinking skills as they construct new knowledge through the examination and evaluation of primary sources and the various perspectives they bring to a topic.
