SS VIT - September

Working to create citizens, one student at a time.

Primarily Literate

This is the name of the Teaching with Primary Sources grant that Suzan Pitmann, Christy Growt, and Amy Bradfield got for Hays CISD. Our ultimate goal is for students to engage with social studies classes at higher levels, and demonstrate more fully developed historical thinking skills.


Source Analysis Tools

Wouldn't it be nice if you had a set of questions for each type of source to help your students analyze the source? What if we all used the same questions from year to year and thought about sources the same way? The Library of Congress has exactly what we need!

Celebrate Freedom Week

Constitution Day is September 17th! This is a perfect opportunity to try out the Source Analysis Tools from the LOC. Look for an activity on the Hays CISD Social Studies Blog!
