Social studies teachers have a leg up on the Common Core with primary and secondary sources, but only if they use those documents correctly! This organizer has helped students get into the right frame of mind for approaching primary and secondary sources--and achieving Common Core-aligned objectives!
This PDF includes a clean and attractive two-page handout organizer, and an annotated version indicating the Common Core literacy standards (RH.9-10) addressed in each section. Suggestions for extension activities to take students into objectives at higher depths of knowledge are also included!
This handout is perfect for introducing advanced middle school and early high school students to document analysis, and can also be used to train older students in habits for successful DBQ writing.
