Thanks to everyone who came to the panel I was part of yesterday at the American Historical Association’s annual meeting in Chicago. I was lucky enough to present with Lendol Calder of Augustana College, and Steve Mintz from the University of Texas at Austin on formative assessment in college classrooms. Natalie Mendoza kicked us off and brought us home with great comments, and the questions from the audience were insightful and thoughtful and I enjoyed talking to everyone so much!
Several people asked if they could have copies of the primary source analysis sheets that I use with my students (and have used successfully with third graders and K-12 teachers too!), so here they are. I’ve uploaded them as Word documents so that you can tweak the language as you need or want to to make them work especially well for you. Please keep the attribution if you can, and if you share (please share!) let people know that they came from me.
Let me know if there are more resources I can offer to you, or if you have any questions – always happy to help out.
