PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This would be an introductory activity for students that have no prior experience with primary sources, or citing textual evidence. I used this as a sort of beginning lesson on how to cite textual evidence.

What I have done is taken excerpts from each of the documents, and have 1-2 questions for each that can be answered by looking at the specific excerpt. It worked well for my as a introductory to citing evidence from the text.
