Want to teach your students about the types of sources they will encounter in history class or in research? This is the perfect PowerPoint presentation to use before students begin a research project or a document-based question (DBQ). It's also wonderful to use any time in a history classroom.
This PowerPoint defines, compares, and contrasts primary, secondary, and tertiary sources. It gives examples of each (especially primary sources) and ends with a consideration of each source's best use in history and research.
