John Dalziel's insight:

Finding Primary sources (those were first-hand created in a given period of time and never undergone any kind of editing or distortion) often isn't easy
Docs Teach, from The National Archive, allows practitioners to create primary source activities for their learners.
It provides seven activity-creation tools that can help learners to develop historical thinking skills and gets them thinking like historians.
With these 7 tools to choose from, practitioners can find and insert primary sources and customize an activity to meet the needs of their learners.
To find primary source documents practitioners can use the search functionality on the right hand side.
