From Studying Primary Sources to Becoming Primary Sources

Instead of just reading primary sources from years ago, students are becoming primary sources in 7th grade Social Studies! Right now, we are living during a time that historians and future students will be learning about. Mrs. Snyder and Ms. Nunziato's students have been keeping a "Primary Source Journal" to reflect on their thoughts about the pandemic, their experiences going to grocery stores, their feelings about being home, their views of online learning, and other thoughts that may come up. This journal provides a great opportunity for students and teachers to connect over shared experiences despite being physically distant.
