Deep Dive Into Digital Content: Minnesota Reflections Primary Source Sets
The work of gathering primary sources on a specific topic and then providing the necessary context to those sources can be a difficult process for both educators and researchers. Join us as we dive into digital content and demonstrate a new, unique resource for historical research, Minnesota Reflections Primary Source Sets. We’ll discuss the content and creation of the Primary Source Set project, using and highlighting access to secondary resources for added context (includes scholarly articles from the Electronic Library for Minnesota databases and government websites). Finally, we’ll also introduce related, original teaching guides which supply educators and researchers with discussion questions and classroom activities for each Primary Source Set.
