Product Description
What are primary sources? How are they different from secondary or tertiary sources? How are they used in writing history? In writing fiction? This learning module, suitable for middle and high-school audiences, runs approximately 24 minutes. It explores online primary source archives and how they were used in researching Rysa Walker's young adult novel, Timebound, which was recently selected by readers as the Grand Prize Winner in the 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award competition.

For educators, an assignment that uses the Library of Congress interview collection and aligns with Common Core requirements for middle and high school American History can be found at http://www.CHRONOSFiles.com.

The Skyscape Publishing edition of Timebound (previously self-published as Time's Twisted Arrow) will be available December 1, 2013, but can be pre-ordered now at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Timebound-ebook/dp/B00CQC9O16/ref=pd_rhf_ee_p_t_1_VS4A.
