Exploring Vacation and Etiquette Themes in Social Studies: Primary Source Inquiry for Middle and High School includes primary source reading guides for the primary source sets featured in the text. Each reading guide focuses student attention on key elements of the text as well as guiding students to answer essential questions relevant to the past and to the lives of students.
A unique challenge of primary source instruction is “knowing the answers” in order to help students interpret historical documents or images. One must understand the context in which the source was produced and the unique language of the source. Information about the author or creator of the source is also required. The internet makes it easy to find primary sources, but locating in-depth and reliable background information is much more difficult and often requires too much time for an already busy middle or high school teacher. Exploring Vacation and Etiquette Themes in Social Studies: Primary Source Inquiry for Middle and High School includes the context and information teachers need to guide students in the analysis of the four unique sets of primary sources.
