Primary vs Secondary Resources – 165

By Steven Miletto

Teaching Learning Leading K12 provides resources for classroom teachers and school-based administrators.

Do you take time to explain the difference between primary and secondary sources of information to your classes?
Do you require the kids to learn to use primary sources not just secondary?
Today I will introduce you to the difference between primary and secondary sources. Then, in the coming weeks, I will share my interview with Mr. Jim Spradley.
At the time of my interview he was 91 years old. He has lived life. He is the children of sharecroppers in south Georgia. He was in the US Navy in the Pacific Theater during World War II. After the war, he focued on starting a business to make a living. He was quite successful.
This is the first episode of a five part series. I hope that you will be inspired as well as think about how you could use this interview to help engage the kids in your classes.
Thanks for listening.
