WORKSHOP 5--UNDERSTANDING SOURCE TYPES
Being able to identify a primary, secondary or tertiary source is an important skill for all students. Any student who participates in NHDC should master this skill in their first year of participation. In this workshop, you will be giving your students a simple assessment to determine their skill level in this area, defining primary, secondary and tertiary sources, and demonstrating each. For National History Day, it is important that students conduct balanced research using both primary and secondary sources. NHD judges will expect students to be able to tell the difference between the two.
