Teaching Current Issues with Trusted Resources
I'm often asked about resources for current issues. I look for resources from quality, trusted partners and emphasize the use of primary sources in the classroom. Tags are used to help sort items; you can filter by each tag by using the tool below.
For more information on using primary sources in social studies, take a look at the Social Studies Disciplinary Literacy page.
