Reflection 1. What is the most valuable take-away you have gained by learning about the resources at the Library of Congress? I feel as if any questions I have about history can be answered here. The abundance of primary source documents will be instrumental is developing not only my knowledge of history, but my future students as well. This website makes me feel far more confident about my future teaching social studies. 2. What is the value of studying history using primary source documents? Primary source documents are as close to an actual event in history that we can get. They must be analyzed and interpreted, which helps develop students critical thinking and reasoning. Primary source documents help to place our minds back in the time we are studying. Teaching with Primary Sources Illinois State University
