This 20 slide presentation begins by teaching about the historical method and how historians go about interpreting the past. it then describes primary and secondary sources. After the foundation is laid, the presentation goes into a investigation of how secondary texts have described the day where Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat in 1955. The students see quotes from various secondary texts and then the presentation gives primary and secondary evidence to either back-up or falsify the claim. I find this to be a powerful tool to show students that everything might not be accurate in a textbook or printed book.

This activity works well at the beginning of a school year, during Black History Month, or when you are covering the Civil Rights Movement.
