        Straight to the Source: Primary and Secondary Sources

        Guide your students in discovering what primary and secondary sources are and how to use them with this interactive lesson from Wisconsin Public Television Education. During this lesson, students watch video clips from the documentary "Wisconsin Hometown Stories: Neenah-Menasha," identifying the primary and secondary sources and how the sources provide evidence for events in a story. They also explain where they can locate primary and secondary sources, such as in libraries and historical societies. As a final task, students create an outline for a presentation telling about an event. They use primary and secondary sources as evidence to support the facts in the event’s story.
