A Look at Primary Sources
One of the best ways to engage with history is to consult the writing or work of those who lived before us. We not only learn about the historical period a source was written or made in but also learn from the time—how to avoid past mistakes, how innovations occurred, and more. In this set for struggling readers or those in need of review, the main content explores primary sources: letters, artwork, poems, autobiographies, newspapers, and photographs. Each volume describes the ways primary sources can be of use to readers today as well as gives historical and modern examples of each.
