Historical thinking requires seeing events from different perspectives and to do this, historians must examine primary sources of all types and groups. This lesson will guide students through this process and also help them synthesize information into an expository paragraph. The lesson provides different types of primary sources for students to examine (videos, letters, newspaper articles, artwork, and photographs), a chart for guided note-taking, and a scaffolding paragraph to synthesize information. Students review the process and then work in pairs to analyze one source. They then share their information with the class to prepare for writing an expository paragraph that synthesizes all points of view. A variety of sources are provided for different learning levels and style from video links to artwork, photographs, in addition to letters and news articles. This activity could even be modified and used as a DBQ since a variety of sources are provided.
