Lesson Plan: Historian's Task

For each group, access the primary sources using the links below, and print out the blog entry and associated primary source. Place these in a folder for each group. It might be helpful to staple or attach the blog entry to the priamry source, and I would recommend labeling the primary sources with letters or numbers to help students discuss.
