Lesson Plan: Historian's Task

These primary sources are associated with the lesson plan Historian's Task: Mary Comes to the College Primary Source Workshop
For each group, access the primary sources using the links below, and print out the blog entry and associated primary source. Place these in a folder for each group. It might be helpful to staple or attach the blog entry to the primary source, and I would recommend labeling the primary sources with letters or numbers to help students discuss.
