PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

As a humanities teacher, I've always struggled with how to get students to read primary sources in their entirety, rather than just skim them "looking for the right answer." This assignment requires students to read for understanding, using excerpts from the "Truman Doctrine" speech and the "attack the text" literacy strategy.

In this assignment, the primary source is in the middle of three columns, with difficult words and phrases footnoted for struggling readers. Students draw lines between paragraphs, number the paragraph, mark the text with a purpose, summarize each paragraph in the left hand column and annotate in the right. This forces them to read the text for understanding, rather than just skim.

Included in the resource is an overview of the "attack the text" strategy, and sample student work you can use to model the process. I've had a lot of success with this approach to primary sources, and find my students leaving class with much deeper understanding. I hope this resource can do the same for your students.
