Better Document Analysis

Glenn Wiebe's History Tech is one of my favorite blogs, and this post, "6 C’s to better document analysis," is one of the more useful Glenn's written recently. After a quick review of some of the great graphic organizers for analyzing primary sources that are out there, Glenn focuses on the History Project's 6 C’s of Primary Source Analysis graphic organizer--the 6 Cs being Content, Citation, Context, Connections, Communications, and Conclusions. I think it is a particularly useful tool because, unlike many primary source analysis tools, it focuses on placing the source in the larger context and linking it to other sources instead of viewing the item in isolation.

I'll stop here and let you hop over to Glenn's post to read more.
