Primary Source Analysis

Return to Teachers Toolkit Search


This workshop introduces students to a wide range of sources and asks them to question their bias, provenance, purpose, etc. Access to original resources and use of online enquiry based learning ensures this is a source analysis lesson they are likely to remember. Please note: for GCSE and A level it may be possible to focus this upon their exam syllabus e.g. medicine through time, crime and punishment, 1906 election, etc.
