Teaching Tips

Discuss what a primary source is and how to use an interview to gather information. It would be helpful to model gathering information and performing an interview. Brainstorm questions together and review how to take notes using key words. Also discuss the importance of spelling names and places correctly and recording information accurately. It is fine to ask for confirmation or to have an interviewee repeat a response for clarification.
