Examples of Primary Sources: Primary sources are not just documents and written records. There are many different kinds of primary sources, including: first-person accounts, documents, physical artifacts, scientific data that has been collected but not inter-preted, and face-to-face mentors with specific knowledge or expertise.

      Over the years, I’ve encouraged students to consider these primary source objects as important entry points into a deeper understanding of everyday life. Have students continue to follow whatever note-taking method they are using for documenting information from secondary sources for these primary sources. Students will become familiar with Boston in the s, and, using primary sources, discover what really happened at the Boston Tea Party.

    Using Primary Sources: History’s Building Blocks. Overview. History is not a passive subject. Historians actively search out and analyze primary sources in order to tell the stories of our past.   Archives are rich in primary sources that can be used for teaching valuable skills to our students. They key starting point to using primary sources in the classroom is teaching foundational skills of how to interact with them: making observations and inferences. An observation and inference activity is easy to plan and can act as a jumping-off.
