Teacher’s Guides and Analysis Tools
The Library of Congress has developed a tool for analyzing primary sources and other media. The tool has three columns for students to record observations, reflections, and questions. At the bottom on the tool, there is a box for students to write notes about next steps for further investigation. To support teachers’ use of this tool, the Library of Congress has also developed a teacher’s guide for using the tool with eleven different types of media and sources of information (e.g., primary sources, photographs, newspapers, oral histories).
