The ELA Common Core State Standards (CCSS) suggest the use of more primary source materials in science and social studies classes. I agree that this will bring some interesting experiences to class and expose kids to some historically important documents. These documents will also challenge them to read “closely” and will offer great ways to generate, and reflect on, text dependent questions. But where are these resources available? They were not as easy to find as I thought, but here is a set of starting points that’ll point you in the right direction!
