Introducing Mini Lessons Component

The Primary Source Seminar would like to introduce the newest component of our blog, Mini Lessons.

Our Mini Lessons component was created to give teachers quick and easy primary source lesson ideas/resources. Utilizing digitized images from various online resources such as the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and the Library of Congress (LOC), and our own Lloyd W. Archival Collection, we have designed short activities for students to use to practice primary source analysis.

Mini Lessons may prove useful to educators teaching Document-Based Questions (DBQs), Historical Thinking skills, or those helping students prepare for the APUSH exam.

Mini Lessons are aligned with the National History Standards. All lessons may be used and adapted as teachers see fit. We only ask that the document's origin be properly cited.

We will try to post new Mini Lessons bi-monthly (at minimum).
