The best way for students to learn history is through close reading of primary sources. By reading primary sources, students build their reading comprehension and learn how to create interesting questions to share with their peers. In this close reading, students read excerpts from Adam Smith's capstone work "The Wealth of Nations." Students read and annotate in the right hand column, creating questions, connections, predictions, reactions and finding definitions. At the end students answer analysis questions and discuss with their classmates.
