This handout is designed to assist students when learning how to critically analyse a historical source.
It allows them to understand the differences between primary and secondary sources and guides them as they unpack the validity, reliability and the usefulness of individual sources. The questions are designed to provoke higher level thinking and provide scaffolding for students to understand why one source is better or more helpful than another.
This source is a great accompaniment to inquiry based learning and research projects.
